JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dan Sullivan has reserved some air time past the Aug. 19 primary.

Records filed with the Federal Communications Commission show Sullivan's campaign reserved time in the fall on at least two TV stations.

Sullivan spokesman Mike Anderson says the campaign is not assuming anything but fully expects Sullivan to be the nominee. He said, as such, the campaign needs to be ready to fight on Aug. 20.

Anderson said by email that it's a smart strategy given the intense competition for post-primary airtime.

Sullivan is one of the three highest-profile candidates vying for the Republican nomination. The others are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller.

Democratic Sen. Mark Begich is seeking re-election.
