  • Arizona Republican Paul Gosar has accused his six siblings of
    being “disgruntled Hillary supporters” after they released a
    campaign ad endorsing Gosar’s Democratic opponent.
  • In the ad, the siblings criticized their brother’s views on
    issues like health care and immigration, and argued that Paul
    Gosar doesn’t have Arizonans’ interests at heart.
  • Paul Gosar tweeted Saturday that he’s “Mom’s favorite,” after
    The New York Times reported that his mother was “shocked” and
    “crushed” to learn of the campaign ad.
  • “To the six angry Democrat Gosars — see you at Mom and Dad’s
    house!” Paul Gosar tweeted.

Rep. Paul Gosar, a Republican congressman from Arizona, has
responded to his six siblings who denounced him in a recent campaign
ad
, calling them “disgruntled Hillary supporters” who “hate
President Trump.”

Gosar noted that he had won the approval of his mother, who
told The New York Times she
was “shocked” and “crushed” to learn that her children had
participated in a series of campaign videos attacking their
brother.

“I guess I really am Mom’s favorite!” Gosar tweeted Saturday.

Bernadette Gosar, 85, told The Times that she had been unaware of
her children’s appearance in the ads until reporters described
them to her. She said she supported her son’s beliefs.

“I share the same philosophy and policies that Paul does,” she
said. “He’s done a hell of a job for Arizona, and they love him.”

Paul Gosar’s siblings, however, disagreed. In the first ad that
surfaced online Friday night, Tim, David, Grace, Joan, Gaston,
and Jennifer Gosar each criticized their brother’s views on
issues like health care and immigration, and endorsed David
Brill, their brother’s Democratic opponent.

“He’s not listening to you, and he doesn’t have your interests at
heart,” Tim Gosar said.

On Saturday, Paul Gosar struck back at his siblings, and said he
hoped they “find peace in their hearts and let go all the hate.

“These disgruntled Hillary supporters are related by blood to me
but like leftists everywhere, they put political ideology before
family. Stalin would be proud,” he tweeted.

He added: “To the six angry
Democrat Gosars — see you at Mom and Dad’s house!”
