JUNEAU -

A national conservative group says it's spending $300,000 on ads painting U.S. Sens. Mark Begich and Mark Pryor as "parroting" statements by President Barack Obama about the federal health care law.

Club for Growth Action focuses on the Democrats' comments about people being able to keep their insurance plans.

There was no immediate breakdown of how the money was being spent between the two states. Begich is from Alaska and Pryor from Arkansas.

Club for Growth PAC endorsed Republican former state Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan in Alaska and Rep. Tom Cotton in Arkansas.

Begich has said when he made the comments, it was expected people could keep their plans. Spokesman Max Croes says Alaskans are tired of Outside groups telling them what to think and who to vote for.
