Republican Congressman's six siblings launch TV advert attacking him
Six siblings of a Republican Congressman standing for re-election have taken the extraordinary step of releasing an advert urging people not to vote for him. Paul Gosar,  from the most conservative wing of the Republican Party,  is standing in Arizona for re-election to the House of Representatives in November. The Congressman has been known to court controversy, and boycotted Pope Francis' speech to Congress in 2015 because of his warnings about climate change. Now six of his siblings have put their support behind his Democratic opponent David Brill in a new television advert disparaging their brother. To maximise its impact, the campaign video does not reveal the six speakers' relationship to Mr Gosar until the very end. The speakers are introduced by first name only - with Grace, a rural physician, stating "Paul Gosar the Congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America". Jennifer, a medical interpreter, chimes in: "if he actually cared about people in rural Arizona, I bet he'd be fighting for social security, for better access to healthcare". "He is not listening to you - and he does not have your best interests at heart," says Tim, before adding: "My name is Tim Gosar". It is not the first time Mr Gosar's siblings have publicly criticised their brother. Last August the Congressman suggested a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virgin
