Arizona Rep. Gosar's 6 siblings publicly endorse his opponent in ad

One minute-long ad, entitled "Paul Gosar Is Not Working for You", starts off routinely, with testimonials slamming Gosar on everything from health care to the environment. "This is not who we are".

Republican Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar might be a near lock for re-election, but not if his six siblings have anything to say about it.

The Phoenix New Times reported the campaign contacted Gosar's siblings for the ad after a staffer saw David Gosar's tweets criticizing his brother.

Six of Gosar's ten siblings apparently couldn't take it anymore, and they came together to produce this masterful ad.

At a Capitol Hill hearing for former Federal Bureau of Investigation official Peter Strzok, Gosar also memorably said that his job as a dentist made him particularly skilled at reading body language.

David Brill David Gosar, brother of Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), says his sibling "doesn't appear to be well".

"I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table", said another sister, Joan.

Gosar suggested in an interview with Vice News that the rally was "created by the left" and carried out by an "Obama sympathizer".

Paul is also said to be a birther who believes that financier and Holocaust survivor George Soros collaborated with the Nazis.

'None of this is pleasant for any of us, ' says brother David Gosar, a lawyer, noting that 'We gotta stand up for our good name.

'We are aghast that Paul has sunk so low that he now spews the most despicable slander against an 87-year-old man without a shred of proof, and then doesn't even have the guts or decency to apologize? "Those aren't our family values or the values of the small Wyoming town we grew up in".

Pete Gosar, who was the seventh signee of the letter, ran for governor of Wyoming as a Democrat in 2014.

It opens with "Grace, rural physician", declaring, "Paul Gosar the congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America".

One ad for Brill racked up over 868,000 views on YouTube by Saturday afternoon.

Sad or not, other siblings piled on.

Recruiting one of your opponent's family members to appear in your political ad would be considered a minor coup; pulling in six of them would be quite "stunning".

But in the deeply red state, pollsters predict Mr Gosar is still likely to retain his seat - the Congressman won his seat with more than 70 per cent of the vote in 2016.
