Newsweek: Republican Matt Gaetz's Challenger, a Retired US Navy Commander, Says Rep is Using 'Cold War' Tactics to Stay in Power

A Democratic challenger for the seat of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has accused the congressman of using cold war tactics and "information warfare" in a new campaign ad.

Phil Ehr, a 26-year veteran of the U.S. Navy who retired as a Commander in 2008, released the video titled "Cut the Noise" Thursday. Ehr contrasts his long career in the military with the career of Gaetz, portrayed as an obsessed fan of President Donald Trump who uses "information warfare" for political advantage.
