Once Dumped by Trump, Mo Brooks Again Seeks His Support

Montgomery, Ala. ( Associated Press) — US Representative Mo Brooks is asking former President Donald Trump to support him once again in Alabama’s Senate race, a request that comes two months after Trump rescinded his endorsement of Congress. Gave.

Brooks issued a statement on Twitter on Sunday asking the “Maga Nation” to help lobby his case for support for Trump, calling himself a “Trump candidate” in the race. In the June 21 runoff, Brooks will face Katie Britt who will decide the GOP nomination for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Richard Shelby.

“Join me in asking President Trump to #ReEndorseMo so we can send a real America First Conservative to the Senate on June 21st by sending a message to Mitch McConnell,” the tweet read.

Trump initially endorsed Brooks last year, rewarding the conservative firebrand who killed a crowd of Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, the rally before the US Capitol uprising. But Trump rebuffed his endorsement of Brooks in March, citing his backward performance and accusing him of “waking up,” saying it was time to move on from Trump’s false 2020 election fraud claims.

“Very sad, but since he has decided to go the other way, I and I are withdrawing our support for Mo Brooks for the Senate,” Trump said in March.

Brooks, stinging Trump’s rebuke, laughed at Trump’s characterization that he was “wake up” and said he and Trump dropped out because he turned down the former president’s urging to help reverse the 2020 election. . “He wanted the election to be canceled and an over,” Brooks told reporters in March. “But there’s no legal way to do that.”

Making a case that he should return to Trump’s side, Brooks wrote on Sunday that Trump “kicked our campaign in the pants we needed.” Despite losing Trump’s endorsement, Brooks made his way to a second-place finish in the May primary, beating “Black Hawk Down” pilot Mike Durant.

Brooks continued to campaign as “Maga Mo” after losing Trump’s support.

Brooks’ plea for Trump came as he left behind a deep-pocketed Brit in an early round of voting. Trump has so far not endorsed another in the race.

“It appears Congressman Brooks’ poor performance in the polls has driven him to this new level of frustration, but it’s particularly interesting because of his frequent flip-flopping,” said Sean Ross, a spokesman for Britt.
