Arizona Representative Paul Gosar’s siblings have come out in support of his Democratic opponent in a series of new ads that were first released on Thursday.

WATCH:

In the ad above, all six of Gosar’s siblings condemned his behavior and actions, while providing their support for his challenger, David Brill.

“We gotta stand up for our good name,” David Gosar said. “This is not who we are.”

“This isn’t just about Paul,” Jennifer Gosar added. “This is about our family.”

Gosar is an ardent Trump supporter. Back in January, prior to the president’s State of the Union address, he suggested the capitol police should check identification and arrest any illegal immigrant. (RELATED: Jeff Flake Gets In Twitter Slap Fight With House Republican Before Trump’s SOTU)

According to the Phoenix New Times, Grace Gosar said in a different ad, “It would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist.”
