<p>Independent Senate candidate Angus King's campaign is threatening legal action if TV stations don't pull a pair of ads accusing him of backroom deals and profiteering on a wind power project in Maine. The King campaign is also airing a TV spot that aims to set the record straight.</p>

<p>PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Campaign Manager Kay Rand said Monday that the campaign petitioned TV stations in Portland, Bangor and Presque Isle because the Republican National Senatorial Committee's ads contain falsehoods. Among them: The ads say King made "millions'' off the Record Hill project while he really made $212,000.<br /> <br /> King has cut ties with the wind energy company to avoid a conflict.<br /> <br /> Kathy Sutton of Roxbury, site of the Record Hill project, said residents are benefiting from reduced taxes, job creation and an energy rebate.<br /> <br /> (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press.
