Trump noted Brooks is just the man America needs right now: strong on Second amendment, pro-life, and will battle Biden’s immigration policies to the very end. Brooks has stood behind Trump during his fight for election integrity. The Senate hopeful also co-chaired Trump’s record-breaking Alabama campaign in 2020.
Following Sen. Richard Shelby’s decision not to seek reelection in 2022, many Republicans flocked to the primary field. Brooks threw his hat in the ring just last month.
Shelby has held the Alabama seat since 1987.
Brooks, an Alabama native, announced his decision to seek Shelby’s seat at a gun range accompanied by top Trump adviser Stephen Miller.
Miller introduced Brooks, saying,”nobody has had President Trump’s back more over the last four years than Mo Brooks. Now I need you to have his back.”
Brooks, 66, is no stranger to D.C. He has served five terms in the House and is part of the conservative Freedom Caucus. He serves on the Armed Services Committee and Science, Space, and Technology, two important committees for his north Alabama district.
Trump won 62% of Alabama’s 2020 vote, and Brooks played a huge role in that success. Republicans in Alabama revealed the GOP primary’s eventual winner will more than likely be the person who can convince voters they will carry out Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.
Trump’s endorsement of Brooks comes on lieu of backing the other front-runner, Lynda Blanchard, who he appointed as ambassador to Slovenia. Trump has stated Blanchard is “proud member of the MAGA movement” but Brooks was able to convince the Former President further.
