U.S. Congressman Mo Brooks (R) finished a distant third in Alabama’s recent Senate primary behind Luther Strange and Roy Moore, but his endorsement was eagerly sought by both remaining candidates as they looked for any edge in what looks to be a tight runoff.
Well the wait is over as last week Brooks emphatically endorsed Judge Moore.
Said Brooks on his decision, “The Senate race comes down to this: we are in an epic battle between the people of Alabama who put America first and the Washington swamp that hopes to buy Alabama’s Senate seat and put America second. I have voted for Roy Moore because Roy Moore not only stands with America, he will fight for America!”
The ‘Alabama vs. Washington’ refrain has been a common one in the race, which is ironic because Strange is supported by President Donald Trump, who swept into the Oval Office on a similar message of “draining the swamp.” Trump is expected to campaign for Strange at some point before election day.
