The pro-Sen. Mark Begich (D) PAC Put Alaska First is out with a new ad hitting former Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan (R) on his Alaskan residency. The spot highlights jobs lost by the shutdown of Koch Industries refinery Flint Hills Resources, and slams Sullivan for his silence on the closure. (Hotline reporting)

Alaska Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell (R) raised $299,000 in the first quarter of 2014, including a $175,000 donation to himself. He has $140,000 cash on hand. Primary opponent Sullivan raised $1.3 million in that same span, and 2010 Senate nominee Joe Miller raised $101,000. (Alaska Dispatch)

MAKING IT OFFICIAL: Miller launched his official Senate campaign with a wild party Wasilla Monday night. To an audience of primarily gun rights advocates, Miller talked death panels, abortion and impeachment of President Barack Obama. He also poked fun at an incident from his 2010 campaign in which he had a reporter handcuffed. He pointed to his children on the stage and said “”They’re all martial arts experts…So I don’t need to bring my handcuffs anymore.”

Gun Owners of America board member Tim Macy introduced the candidate, saying “We’re looking for the Ted Cruz’s, the Mike Lees, the Rand Pauls.” The audience finished him, ” and the Joe Millers!” (Alaska Dispatch)

A video of his childhood and work history was also shown:
