McCain’s Family Upset Over Senator’s Use in GOP Ad

The family of the late Sen. John McCain is disappointed in a new GOP political ad released Wednesday, according to a report.

“The McCain family believes it is unfortunate that the senator’s image is being weaponized this election season,” Julie Tarallo, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Republican’s family, told CNN Wednesday. “And they would hope there would be more respect, especially so soon after his passing.”

The ad, cut by the National Republican Congressional Committee, attacks Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, who is running in a tight race for Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District. The seat is held by Rep. Martha McSally, who is vying to represent the state in the U.S. Senate.

The spot features clips of McCain criticizing Kirkpatrick’s positions on taxes and federal spending when the two were competing for a place in the Senate in 2016.
