Six siblings of Arizona Republican urge voters: don't re-elect our brother

Six siblings of Republican congressman Paul Gosar urged voters not to re-elect their brother in November

"Paul Gosar the congressman isn't doing anything to help rural America", says physician Grace Gosar.

Rep. Gosar's opponent, Mike Brill narrowly won the August democratic primary, by less than 2,000 votes, to challenge Gosar in November.

Siblings Tim, Jennifer, Gaston, Joan, Grace and David have always been estranged from their brother, and have now formally declared their opposition to his re-election campaign and support for Mr Brill.

Six of Paul Gosar's siblings - Tim, Jennifer, Gaston, Joan, Grace and David - have teamed in that ad urging people to vote against their brother and vote for Brill.

In a series of videos, the siblings criticize Gosar's hardline stance on immigration, his support for U.S. President Donald Trump's border wall, his track record on the environment and his position on health care.

The Phoenix New Times reported that the ad and others were unveiled at a fundraiser in Phoenix on Thursday night - and that in another spot, which is not public yet, Grace Goser says that "it would be hard to see my brother as anything but a racist".

The Republican candidate has previously come under fire for flying to England over the summer to voice support for an extremist anti-Muslim organization.

It's just the latest ad to feature a politician's family member this year.

"To speak up against my brother, it brings sadness to me", says Joan Gosar.

"None of this", said brother David, a lawyer, "is pleasant for any of us".

Whether or not speaking out will make much of a difference is up for debate.

In a series of campaign videos posted online ahead of their broadcast on United States television, each of them give their view on why their brother is an unsuitable representative for Arizona and deserves to lose his seat.

Gosar has also made headlines for controversial comments about Native Americans and recently, when he warned attorneys helping refugees they could be prosecuted.

In 2016, Gosar defeated Democratic challenger Mikel Weisser handedly with 72 percent of the vote.

"We've got to stand up for our good name". "This is not who we are". Another said he traded in everything he learned around the family kitchen table.
