PHOENIX — Six siblings of U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar urged voters to cast their ballots against the Arizona Republican in November in an unusual political ad sponsored by the rival candidate.

The television ad from Democrat David Brill combines video interviews with Gosar-family siblings who ask voters to usher Paul Gosar out of office because he has broken with the family's values. They did not elaborate.

The siblings previously condemned the congressman's false accusation in 2017 that wealthy Democratic donor George Soros was a Nazi collaborator in World War II.

Gosar is a fourth-term congressman for a sprawling district in northeastern and central Arizona.

Phone calls Saturday to his offices in Washington and Arizona were not returned.
