    Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks suggested in a radio interview that Republicans are retiring en masse because of assassination fears. . . . . But Brooks said while there were multiple factors that contributed to a slew of Republicans leaving the House, he suggested fears of violence was a major one. One of the things thats concerning me is the assassination risk may become a factor, he said. . . . . Notice a trend here? he said. I have a congressman who is a friend here who has a three-year old daughter whose daughter was threatened with murder. He also...

    House conservatives on Wednesday revolted against a massive bipartisan deal to raise the debt ceiling and bust spending caps, complaining that the GOP could no longer lay claim to being the party of fiscal responsibility. Im not only a no. Im a hell no, quipped Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), one of many members of the Tea Party-aligned Freedom Caucus who left a closed-door meeting of Republicans saying they would vote against the deal. Its a Christmas tree on steroids, lamented one of the Freedom Caucus leaders, Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.). This spending proposal is disgusting and reckless the...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he will be voting in the Alabama special election next month for Judge Roy Moore, the man who beat him in the primary, because it is important to have conservatives in Congress. America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago, Brooks told AL.com in a text message. Who will vote in Americas best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote...

    Washington Post ^ | 08/15/2017 | David Weigel
    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Republican voters here put a bitter Senate campaign into overtime, forcing Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) into a runoff with conservative jurist Roy Moore for the right to represent Attorney General Jeff Sessionss old seat. Strange was endorsed by President Trump, the National Rifle Association and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnells super PAC, which spent $2.5 million on TV ads to boost him in Tuesdays primary. That helped push him past Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), saving national Republicans from an embarrassment in a unique mid-summer election marked by low turnout. Democrats, who have not won a Senate race...

    Race Preview After weeks of ads, mostly on behalf of incumbent Senator Luther Strange, the votes start rolling in tonight after 8pm EDT. Strange faces strong competition from former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who has led him in the polling average by about 5-6 points, and from Huntsville Congressman Mo Brooks, who has trailed Strange in the average by a little over the same margin. If polling is correct, Strange and Moore will advance to the September 26th runoff. We anticipate the first results will roll in within thirty minutes of polls closing. Well have comparison charts...

    After the GOP leadership lost health care reform in the Senate by a single vote with three renegade Republicans joining a unanimous bloc of Democrats, youd think Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would be singularly focused on capturing the 25 Senate seats Democrats will be defending in 2018. Youd think. Instead, a McConnell-aligned PAC is running a vicious attack ad campaign in the special election for Attorney General Jeff Sessions open Senate seat in Alabamain the GOP primaryagainst a Republican congressman.

    [snip] Brooks expressed his sadness over Trumps decision, claiming he was baffled and disappointed Mitch McConnell and the Swamp somehow misled the President into endorsing Luther Strange. Brooks has previously registered his opposition to McConnell, calling for his ouster last month after the failure of Republican efforts to pass health care legislation. And so, in light of Trumps tweet knocking the Majority Leader, Brooks has made one last-ditch effort to win back his affection, telling the president that Strange and McConnell dont support [his] agenda, and asking Trump to reconsider his endorsement: Mo Brooks @mobrooksforsen I agree completely, Mr. President....

    Congressman Mo Brooks responded this morning to President Trump's endorsement of Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama's special election for the Senate. "I respect President Trump, but I am baffled and disappointed Mitch McConnell and the Swamp somehow misled the President into endorsing Luther Strange," Brooks said in a press release. Brooks, a Republican from Huntsville, suggested Trump is unaware of the circumstances of Strange's appointment by former Gov. Robert Bentley and Strange's support for maintaining Senate filibuster rules, which some say jeopardize the Trump agenda. "Perhaps President Trump is unaware that Luther Strange wants to keep the Senate's 60 percent...

Mo Brooks (R-AL) surges behind him and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore remains steady in first place. The poll shows Moore at 30 percent, Strange at 22 percent, and Brooks at 19 percent. Others combine for a total...

    Dear friends in Alabama, now is the time to stand up and be counted. Now is the time to tell the establishment in D.C. that we are tired of their moderate hand-wringing and their constant efforts to dictate to the people instead of serving the people. Senator Luther Strange (R-AL) has done a fine job in replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Senate, but hes long been a tool of the establishment and we know where his loyalties lie. He was selected by the corrupt and disgraced former Governor of Alabama, not elected by the people of Alabama who...

Luther Strange (R-AL), including Alabama State Representative Ed Henry, who was the chairman of Trumps campaign in that state. I worked tirelessly to get Donald Trump elected because I saw the need to bust up the status quo in D.C. For that same reason I am supporting Mo Brooks, Henry told Breitbart News. He is a man of character, willing to sacrifice his own political capitol to do what is best for America, Henry said....
