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)
