WASHINGTON (AP) — An old feud and the race for women voters is intensifying the tight Arizona Senate race with the former boss of Democrat Richard Carmona starring in a new ad that questions his temperament to serve in the Senate.
Democrats fired back with their own ad that accuses Republican Jeff Flake of voting against bulletproof vests for local police and federal funding for child abuse prevention.
The Republican spot features Dr. Cristina Beato, the former acting assistance secretary at HHS, describing how Carmona pounded on her door in the middle of the night while he served as surgeon general because of disagreements about his travel.
Looking into the camera, she says she feared for her kids and for herself.
The Carmona campaign denied the allegations.
