Alaska Senate candidate Dan Sullivan's (R) campaign is out with a new ad featuring the father of an Alaskan soldier who died in Iraq who says that Sullivan shares his son's patriotic values.
"That's why I support Dan Sullivan. I know that he shares the same values my son had. This is a man of the highest personal integrity that will not compromise his principles for political gain. He's ready to fight for Alaska, he is the right man for the job and this is the time that we need him the most," Woods continues.
The minute-long spot never directly mentions that Sullivan is a Marine, though at one point it shows him overseas in military gear holding an Alaska flag.
Sullivan is looking to hold off Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell (R) ahead of his mid-August primary, though he's spent the bulk of his campaign trading shots with Sen.
