An extraordinary series of new campaign ads in Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District features six siblings of Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) condemning the congressman in scathing terms to endorse Gosar’s Democratic challenger, Dr. David Brill. 
The siblings—Grace, David, Jennifer, Joan, Tim, and Gaston—speak candidly about the heartbreaking task of speaking out against their brother and his positions on a range of issues including healthcare, immigration, and the economy.
But with their decisions made, don’t expect the Gosar family to mince words either.
“Paul’s absolutely not working for his district,” David Gosar says in one of the videos. “I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,” Joan Gosar says in another. Tim Gosar describes the election as “intervention time” to vote his brother out of office.
The ads conclude with each of the Gosar siblings stating their full names and proclaiming their official support for Brill’s bid to unseat their brother. Together, the forceful denunciations created what is being widely called one of the most scathing campaign ads in recent memory. 

In a series of tweets Saturday, the congressman dismissed his six siblings as “disgruntled Hillary supporters” related only by blood. “Stalin would be proud,” he claimed.

Not one of my siblings lives in Arizona and my opponent’s policies are out of sync with what Arizona wants and the country needs. I will not be deterred from fighting for our conservative values regardless of these attacks. #az04 #MAGA2018

My siblings who chose to film ads against me are all liberal Democrats who hate President Trump. These disgruntled Hillary suppporters are related by blood to me but like leftists everywhere, they put political ideology before family. Stalin would be proud. #Az04 #MAGA2018
