(CNN) - Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska says a new commercial by the Tea Party Express that targets her as a sore loser whose sole goal is to keep her Senate seat is full of "lies," and she's urging television stations in her state not to run the ad.
Tea Party Express announced Monday that they are in the process of buying ad time in Alaska and hope to start running the 60 second commercial as early as next week.
Murkowski, who is part of a political dynasty in Alaska, conceded defeat in her bid for her party's nomination one week after she was upset in the August 24th Republican Senate primary by attorney Joe Miller. Miller is a previous longshot who enjoyed strong support from Tea Party activists and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
But last month Murkowski announced she would run in the general election as a write-in candidate.
The Tea Party Express, a national Tea Party organization based in Sacramento, California, endorsed Miller earlier this summer and spent nearly $600,000 during the primary campaign to help him defeat Murkowski.
The group now says they plan to spend in the six figures to run the 60 second ad, as well as a 30 second commercial that highlights Miller's biography, including years at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the awarding of a Bronze star for his service in the Persian Gulf War.
But it's the commercial targeting Murkowski that's under attack.
"Lisa Murkowski first got her U.S. Senate seat when her father, Frank Murkowksi, appointed her. She didn't earn it. Lisa promised she would respect the will of the electorate in this year election and support the winner of the Republican primary. But Lisa wasn't really willing to give up the gift her daddy gave her. She tried to influence the absentee vote count. When that didn't work, she said she'd concede. Then she tried to manipulate the LIbertarian party into giving her their slot on the ballot. That didn't work either," says the narrator in the ad.
The commercial ends with the narrator saying "You lost Lisa, and it's time you respect that this Senate seat doesn't belong to you."
Late Monday, Murkowski fired back.
"Alaskans deserve a better political discourse than this," says Murkowski in an email release. "This ad is vile. Accusing me of influencing the absentee voter count is dirty politics at it worst."
Murkowski's campaign says the senator's legal counsel has sent a letter to all Alaska broadcasters "reminding them that they will be held liable for knowingly running false advertising or for knowingly broadcasting false information. The television stations have been urged by the Murkowski campaign to pull the ads until they can be verified through legitimate sources."
Murkowski is taking issue with two lines in the ad that accuse her of trying to "influence the vote count" and that "she tried to manipulate the Libertarian party into giving her their slot on the ballot." Murkowski's campaign says neither accusation is true.
Last week Murkowski's campaign went up with a new commercial on Alaska television which takes aim at the Tea Party Express.
"So they're going to come up here and drop another dirty money bomb on Alaska and try to take our seat," says one women in the ad.
"You know, they fooled a lot of people before the primary but we're on to them now," adds a man in the commercial.
A recent CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation poll indicated that 38 percent of likely voters in the state support Miller, while 36 percent back Murkowski. Twenty-two percent back Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, the Democratic nominee, with four percent either undecided or not supporting any of the three candidates listed in the survey.
Miller's two-point advantage over Murkowski is within the survey's sampling error.
