Six of U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar’s siblings have appeared in online ads asking Arizona voters to back David Brill, their brother’s Democratic opponent in November.
The stunning public endorsement underscores the family’s rancorous relationship with the conservative firebrand who has represented Arizona’s 4th Congressional District since 2011.
“It would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist,” sister Grace Gosar says in an ad for Brill.
“I think my brother has traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table,” sister Joan Gosar says in another.
Paul Gosar responded Saturday with some judgment of his siblings.
