Although it was not totally unexpected, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) got a shot in the arm for his 2022 U.S. Senate bid on Wednesday.
Through a statement, Brooks was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, which is considered to be pivotal for statewide contests in Alabama.
The endorsement eluded Brooks in his 2017 bid for U.S. Senate. Trump endorsed then-U.S. Sen. Luther Strange (R-Mountain Brook) in that race.
However, this time Trump applauded Brooks, declaring him someone who “will never let you down!”
Statement as follows:
Few Republicans have as much COURAGE and FIGHT as Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks. Mo is a great Conservative Republican leader, who will stand up for America First no matter what obstacles the Fake News Media, RINOs, or Socialist Democrats may place in his path. Mo Brooks is pro-life, loves our Military and our Vets, will protect our Second Amendment, combat the Biden open borders agenda, is fighting for voter integrity (like few others), and was the Co-Chair of our winning, and record setting, Alabama campaign in 2020. Mo Brooks has my Complete and Total Endorsement for the U.S. Senate representing the Great State of Alabama. He will never let you down!
