  • Trump loyalist Mo Brooks — spurned by Trump and reeling from a Senate primary loss — now says he'll testify about the Capitol riot if subpoenaed

    Rep. Mo Brooks, a one-time ally of former President Donald Trump, said he's willing to testify before the January 6 panel investigating the Capitol riot if subpoenaed. Thompson told The Hill that Brooks wasn't served his earlier subpoena because he had been on the campaign trail. Until this point, Brooks has not cooperated with the January 6 panel, having rejected a letter from the committee in May that called for him to testify. In July 2021, Brooks told a reporter that he wore body armor to the pro-Trump rally at the Ellipse just before the January 6 Capitol riot. At...

    TPM via MSN ^ | 6/22/22 | Christina Cabrera
    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), projected to lose Alabama’s GOP Senate primary runoff against rival Katie Britt after a full slap in the face from ex-President Donald Trump, concluded his rocky campaign with some bitter words in his concession speech on Tuesday night. “The voters have spoken,” but “they might not have spoken wisely,” Brooks complained to supporters at his election night party, per the Washington Post. The ultra-MAGA congressman took a shot at Britt, who won a last-minute endorsement from Trump, and her apparent lack of MAGA-ness. “It’s always appropriate to congratulate the winners, and some of these winners might...

    In case you didn’t know (between the horrid “bi-partisan” gun bill the Senate is attempting to pass and the distressing news out of Uvalde), there are several primaries and runoff elections happening tonight.One race that RedState has watched closely is the Alabama Senate contest. Former President Donald J. Trump first endorsed, then pulled said endorsement from U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, and instead backed his challenger Katie Britt, a former Chief of Staff to Sen. Richard Shelby, who is retiring from this Senate seat.The runoff contest became a choice between the true MAGA candidate and the Republican establishment candidate.On Tuesday night,...
  • Katie Britt Declared Winner Of Alabama GOP Senate Primary Over Mo Brooks

    Conservative Brief ^ | 6/21/2022 | Martin Walsh
    Former President Donald Trump rescinded his endorsement of Republican Rep. Mo Brooks earlier this year — and it likely just cost him his seat. GOP candidate Katie Britt was declared the winner of Alabama’s Republican Senate run-off on Tuesday night. She will face Democrat Will Boyd in November’s general election for the open Senate seat, which is predicted to remain in Republican hands. Last week, Trump tossed his full support behind Britt. Britt received the most votes in the state’s GOP primary but she failed to win more than 50 percent support on election night. Britt is outgoing Republican Sen....

    Mo Brooks opposed the Biden-Pelosi Defense Bill Katie Britt supports. Here’s what Britt’s endorsing: Red Flag Gun Confiscation, Critical Race Theory, taxpayer paid sex change operations, renaming bases and even drafting women. Katie Britt’s a woke moderate who supported Doug Jones over Roy Moore, while sitting silently as Britt Demolition took down Birmingham’s Confederate Monument. Katie Britt. Too Weak. Too Woke. Wrong. For Alabama.

    With less than 24 hours until Republican voters go to select their choice for who will represent the GOP in November's U.S. Senate election, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) is calling for his opponent, former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt, to be disqualified for what he claimed as supporting Doug Jones in his 2017 U.S. Senate bid against then-Republican candidate Roy Moore. Brooks' overtures about the 2017 election have been a fixture on the campaign trail during this 2022 cycle. However, on Monday's broadcast of Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," Brooks called the Alabama...

    Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky will visit Alabama to campaign for Congressman Mo Brooks in the Republican primary runoff for U.S. Senate. The Brooks campaign announced that Paul, Republican of Kentucky, will headline two townhall events on Friday in Homewood and Huntsville. Paul in March became the first sitting member of the Senate to endorse Brooks in the race, saying in part, “Mo has proven time and time again he will stand up for liberty and do what he thinks is right.” Brooks’ campaign announced the events on Friday, just hours before former President Donald Trump said he was endorsing...

    Yellow Hammer News ^ | June 9, 2022 | Dylan Smith
    Steve Cortes, a conservative news personality and past adviser to former President Donald Trump, was one of media’s first prominent voices to speak in favor of the “America First” movement. An advocate for what he describes as “economic nationalism” and “cultural conservatism,” Cortes actively supports the candidacies of individuals who subscribe to Trump’s rebranded style of Republican orthodoxy. Two of the most recent candidates Cortes has aligned himself with during the 2022 GOP primary election cycle are Arizona senatorial hopeful Blake Masters and Ohio’s Republican U.S. Senate nominee J.D. Vance, both of whom hold the 45th president’s endorsement. Like Cortes,...

    Mo Brooks created a stir among conservative commentators this week after sparring with a Fox News host who told viewers that there was no evidence of widespread election fraud in 2020. “That’s wrong,” the congressman said emphatically, talking over Sandra Smith as she maintained that the election was not stolen. “I don’t know why you people in the media keep saying that, but that is absolutely false.” Among those who saw the clip was Donald Trump.The former president, who endorsed Brooks in the Alabama Senate GOP primary before ditching him as his campaign floundered, was pleased by Brooks’ performance during...
  • Britt holds edge over Rep. Mo Brooks in Alabama Senate Republican runoff

    05/29/2022 7:53:41 PM PDT · by RandFan · 32 replies
    When Katie Britt announced her run for Senate in Alabama last June, private polling pegged her name recognition at 8% and political support among Republican voters at just 4%. Nearly one year later, Britt finished first, with 44.75%, in Tuesday’s primary and is favored to defeat Rep. Mo Brooks in a June 21 runoff. Runoffs are not always hospitable to establishment-backed candidates who win round one but fall short of 50%. Brooks weathered losing former President Donald Trump’s endorsement in March, and he enters the runoff with some momentum. But Britt’s performance in the primary was so sweeping that Alabama...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala,) is absolutely opposed to any new restrictions on guns — even regarding military-style assault weapons — because people need them to “take back” our government, he explained on Fox News Sunday. Such action should only be undertaken in the event America becomes “dictatorial,” Brooks told host Sandra Smith. “Oh, no, that’s wrong. That is absolutely false,” said Brooks, before Smith corrected him yet again. Brooks claims the whole idea of the Second Amendment was to arm citizens to take over the country if need be — and that not having enough guns will spark the appetite...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) got into a fiery argument with a “Fox News Sunday” guest host over the 2020 presidential election, which Brooks repeatedly claimed was stolen and riddled with fraud. When Brooks pressed his claims of voter fraud and pushed for tighter election laws, guest host Sandra Smith countered that effort after effort had failed in court to prove the 2020 election was stolen from former President Trump. “The congressmen and senators disagree with you, with what you just said,” Brooks told her. “Elections are going to be stolen if we don’t fix these problems.” Smith and Brooks then...

    AUBURN, Ala. -- Alabama’s Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby has become a bitter high-dollar contest with the three strongest contenders jockeying for the nomination. The leading candidates are U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks who won — and then lost — former President Donald Trump’s backing in the race; Katie Boyd Britt, the former leader of Business Council of Alabama and Shelby’s former chief of staff; and Mike Durant, an aerospace company owner best known as the helicopter pilot whose capture during a U.S. military mission in Somalia was chronicled in the...

    While Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks has been holding “Fire McConnell” town halls on his statewide U.S. Senate campaign, the Republican leader in the Senate apparently wants to make sure Alabama voters don’t hire Brooks. A super PAC affiliated with Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky senator and north Alabama native expected to be restored as majority leader if Republicans win control of the Senate in November, has contributed $2 million to a super PAC opposing Brooks’ election while also supporting one of his opponents, former Sen. Richard Shelby Chief of Staff Katie Britt.

    House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers allied with former President Donald Trump were subpoenaed by the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the panel said Thursday. The move marked the first time that the bipartisan investigation has issued subpoenas to sitting members of Congress. The dramatic step came less than a month before that House committee planned to kick off a series of public hearings. Along with McCarthy, the other Republican House members whose testimony is being sought under subpoena are Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama...

    According to two separate surveys conducted in early May, the Alabama U.S. Senate Republican primary has a new leader, former Business Council of Alabama CEO and president Katie Britt. One poll commissioned by the Alabama Forestry PAC and conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, a survey of 500 respondents conducted May 2 through May 5, showed Britt up over Durant and Brooks by double-digits. Another survey obtained by Breitbart News, conducted by the Moore Information Group, a pollster used by Republicans across the country, was conducted May 2 through May 5 and also showed Britt out front but with Durant...

    Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson ripped into House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday over recently released audio recordings of the California Republican criticizing then-President Donald Trump and fellow GOP representatives in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. McCarthy promised members of his leadership team, including House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and then-Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, that he would encourage Trump to resign in a Jan. 10 phone call. After the top House Republican denied having the conversation, two New York Times reporters released an audio recording of the conversation. The two reporters released...
