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.
