McSally campaign ad confuses Mark Kelly with twin brother

U.S. Sen. Martha McSally's latest commercial attempts to contrast herself with her Democratic opponent, but mistakenly uses a counterfeit "Counterfeit Kelly" featuring Mark Kelly's twin brother instead.

"If you want smiles and a sales pitch, you've got a guy," McSally's script read, displaying a photograph of a grinning Kelly brother posing with a thumbs-up gesture, showing off a chunky watch on his wrist.

"But if you want a fighter, I'm your girl," said the appointed Republican senator in a voice-over, as video showed her striding in slow-motion in a flightsuit decked out with non-military patches as she implicitly referenced her Air Force service.

The Kelly in the photograph, however, isn't Mark Kelly, former Navy fighter pilot and astronaut, husband of ex-congresswoman Gabby Giffords, and a familiar enough face from a cascade of Senate campaign ads.

3. A friend of mine is in AZ...

To assist an elder in casting their vote and we were discussing these two and their race to the Senate seat. My friend mentioned that McSally is a former fighter pilot and I told them that in this case it's a "so what?" kind of thing since Kelly is an astronaut!

There are other vets in Congress, the women among them, are very intelligent and responsible representatives. This one, however is not in that category.

4. Not surprised

The McSally ads I've seen look very amateurish. Don't know who is doing her ads but don't think it's a top flight agency.
