JUNEAU- New robocalls from the National Republican Senatorial Committee label Democratic Sen. Mark Begich as someone "whose answer to every problem is tax increases."
Beginning Wednesday, the committee plans to call thousands of Alaska households seen as likely swing voters, asking them if they agree that Begich "isn't working for the middle class."
The committee has seen Alaska as critical to Republicans' efforts to regain control of the U.S. Senate next year.
Begich is in the midst of his first term. Republicans who have announced plans to seek his seat include Joe Miller and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell.
Alaska's primary isn't until next August.
 
Begich campaign manager Susanne Fleek said in a statement that with kids heading back to school, families are looking forward to hearing how what their kids did during the day, not some "Outside operative leaving a message on their answering machine."
