Jeff Poor – Yellowhammer

Last week, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) formally launched his 2022 U.S. Senate bid. In attendance introducing Brooks was former Trump adviser Stephen Miller, who espoused the potential benefits of having the Fifth Congressional District representative as Republicans’ choice to fill the U.S. Senate seat occupied by outgoing U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Tuscaloosa).

During an appearance on Mobile radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Miller reiterated that message by arguing Brooks was the best candidate to provide a counterbalance to the liberal Biden administration.

“Obviously, we are very concerned — maybe another word is ‘deeply alarmed’ — by what’s happening in the country under the Biden administration,” he said. “And I think part of the reason why I wanted to come on your show today was because Alabama is in a unique position to do something about it. Fate has put you in the position of having a gentleman named Mo Brooks in your congressional delegation that you can elevate to the United States Senate, and he will be the single greatest warrior in the hull of the U.S. Senate for the values and principles that we all care about, whether it is free speech, right to bear arms, secure borders, religious liberty. You name it — Mo is going to be there for you.”

“One of the things we know is Mo has developed a reputation for fearlessness during his time in Congress,” Miller continued.”That is a character trait that the people of Alabama truly value. I’m not surprised at all to see that he has leapt out to front-runner status. I’ll just make this point as somebody who, let’s just say, has had the misfortune of living in Washington, D.C. since the age of 22 — what I can tell you is if you want to send a message to Washington that they will not be able to ignore — it’s lining up and supporting Mo Brooks in record numbers. If they see Alabamians come out and support Mo to a historic degree so that he doesn’t just win the primary, he crushes it — that will send an unmistakable message to the radical left in Washington, D.C. They will be talking about that inside the West Wing of the Biden administration, and they’ll be saying, ‘Holy crap, Alabama just sent the greatest fighter they could possibly find to try to stop the Biden agenda.”

“That’s a really exciting thing for Alabama to be in the position,” he added. “Too often in these primaries all across the country, you’re just choosing between one sleepy Republican versus another sleepy Republican. Mo isn’t just fearless. He knows his issues, and nobody is more educated on the border crisis than Mo Brooks. And if you want to stop the border crisis, you’re going to need to elect people who are going to go to the Senate and use the considerable power of the Senate to try to shut this thing down on our border.”
