This is the type stuff that usually impacts GOP candidates. IMO Begich screwed up by not immediately pulling the ad. My reason for this is it impacts an innocent family he tried to use for political benefit. This could be a very important seat.

Yep, pretty much a Hail Mary, that fell flat on it's face.

One state political observer saw Begich’s decision to air the ad in the first place as an act of political desperation.

“You want to take that big risk if you think you are down and you need that home run you are going to go for it, and that’s what this advertisement told me about the Begich campaign — that they need to fight very hard and take significant risks in order to win in November,” University of Alaska, Anchorage political science professor Forrest Nabors told KTVA.
