Safe Nation PAC is spending nearly $25,000 on a mailing that aims to steer potential Angus King votes to Democratic candidate Cynthia Dill in Maine's U.S. Senate race.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Another conservative super PAC is spending money on behalf of Democrat Cynthia Dill in the Senate race in hopes of drawing votes away from independent Angus King.

Safe Nation PAC is spending nearly $25,000 on a mailing that describes Dill as "the only Senate candidate progressives can trust.'' It also says progressives "can't take a chance on Angus King.''

It's not the first time a conservative PAC has spent money on behalf of Dill in hopes of drawing support away from King and thereby helping Republican Charlie Summers.

The GOP-led super PAC, Maine Freedom, earlier spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on TV ads urging Democrats to stick with Dill, describing her as a "bold progressive.''
