JUNEAU - So far, Ted Stevens and Mark Begich have kept the gloves on in this U.S. Senate race.
But their backers have become embroiled in a public spat over some of Begich's financial disclosures.
State GOP spokesman McHugh Pierre says Begich broke his campaign promise to be open with his earnings, and filed a complaint with the Alaska Public Offices Commission.
He claims Begich didn't submit some of his wife's stock holdings in disclosure forms.
Begich admits the error, and says it was an accident.
Begich spokeswoman Julie Hasquet says Pierre is trying to divert attention from Stevens, who faces felony charges of failing to disclose more than $250,000 in gifts.
Begich and Stevens are presumed to be the general election opponents, but must first win respective primary races on Tuesday.
