The Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with a surprising ally — Sen. Rand PaulRandal (Rand) Howard PaulMcConnell about to school Trump on political power for the last time Legislatures boost security after insurrection, FBI warnings Former Missouri senator says backing Hawley was 'worst mistake of my life' MORE (R-Ky.) — to help boost the GOP's chances of winning a hard-fought Alaska Senate race.


"Washington is horribly broken," Paul says in an ad recorded for the group before slamming "liberal" Sen. Mark BegichMark Peter BegichAlaska Senate race sees cash surge in final stretch Alaska group backing independent candidate appears linked to Democrats Sullivan wins Alaska Senate GOP primary MORE (D-Alaska).

"Washington takes too much of our freedoms and too much of our money. I think Dan Sullivan will get it back. To change Washington, change your senator," Paul says.

The pairing of the business-focused, center-right chamber and the libertarian-leaning Paul is an unusual one. It signals that Paul is looking to build bridges with more establishment-leaning groups as he prepares for a possible presidential run in 2016.

Sullivan and Begich are locked in a tight race, though recent polling has indicated that Sullivan has opened up a lead, leaving some Democrats nervous.

The ad could help Sullivan with the state's large swath of libertarian-leaning GOP voters.
