JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican Dan Sullivan is out with his first radio ad of the U.S. Senate race.

The ad, entitled "Love," began running Thursday. A campaign spokesman says it will run for 10 days.

Sullivan, in the ad, talks about his love for his wife, the state and the country. But he says he says he hates what "Washington politicians" are doing to Alaska and the country.

He highlights his experience as a Marine and as Alaska's attorney general and Natural Resources commissioner. As a U.S. assistant secretary of state, he says he "pursued global terrorist regimes."

He says it's been six years since Alaska had a "warrior" in the Senate.

Sullivan is one of the GOP contenders for the Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Begich. Begich is seeking re-election.
