Rep. Mo Brooks, an Important Figure in Trump’s Insurrection, Is Running For a Senate Seat

Donald Trump did a lot to incite an riot on the US Capitol on January sixth. But that doesn’t imply that he didn’t have assist. The former President’s greatest allies within the Senate have been Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley.

Trump’s high enabler within the House of Representatives was Alabama congressman Mo Brooks. And Brooks is betting that the Trump assist will propel him to a seat within the Senate.

Brooks said on Monday, “Today, lest there be any doubt, I announce my candidate for the United States Senate from the great state of Alabama.”

Back in January, Brooks was utilizing fiery language to assist Trump’s huge lie. He said on the day of the riot, “Our Republic’s election system…is under attack. In 2020 America suffered the worst voter fraud and election theft in history. And all of America would know that if the news media wasn’t suppressing the truth as they’re doing.”

And it seems like Brook’s has Trump’s assist. The former President dispatched aide Jason Miller to be there for Brooks’s announcement. Miller told the assembled crowd:

“Nobody over the last four years has had President Trump’s back more than Mo Brooks. But now, I need you to have his back. I need you to have Mo’s back. Your vote for Mo Brooks will allow him to carry on the America First Agenda. The fight to save America and to save our country, our constitution and our liberty begins right here in Alabama and it begins right here with your support for Mo Brooks.”
