6 siblings of an Arizona Republican congressman endorsed his Democratic opponent in a scathing campaign ad

  • Republican congressman Paul Gosar has six siblings who do not want him to keep his seat in Arizona's 4th District this November.
  • They endorsed Gosar's Democratic opponent, David Brill, in a campaign ad posted online Friday.
  • In the ad, Gosar's siblings remarked about their brother's positions on health care, immigration, and the environment. "He's not listening to you, and he doesn't have your interests at heart," Tim Gosar said.

Six siblings of Arizona Republican representative Paul Gosar appeared in a campaign ad endorsing his Democratic opponent, David Brill.

Video of the ad made the rounds online Friday night. In it, Tim, David, Grace, Joan, Gaston, and Jennifer Gosar each gave their own takes on why they believe Paul Gosar is unfit to keep the 4th District seat he has held since 2013. They also remarked about their brother's positions on health care, immigration, and the environment.

"If [voters] care about health care, their children's' health care, they would hold him to account," Grace Gosar said.

"If he actually cared about people in rural Arizona, I bet he'd be fighting for Social Security, for better access to health care," Jennifer Gosar said. "I bet he would be researching what is the most insightful water policy to help the environment of Arizona sustain itself and be successful."

Tim Gosar made the final pitch: "He's not listening to you, and he doesn't have your interests at heart."

In an October 2017 interview with the Phoenix New Times, David Gosar had harsher words for his politician brother, scolding him at the time for amplifying conspiracy theories about the white-supremacist rally that year in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"There's no dispute about our opposition to him," Gosar said. "It's something that has been building for some time. Watching what he does up there in Congress. It's ridiculous."

David Brill is seen as a long shot candidate in the Arizona 4th District race. He told the Phoenix New Times he is grateful for the Gosar family's support, calling them "upstanding, wonderful people."

Videographers from Brill's campaign interviewed Gosar's siblings, but Brill said he was not personally involved with the ad, or the siblings' remarks.
