The Hill reports:
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said Monday he is interested in running for the Senate in the wake of Sen. Richard Shelby’s (R-Ala.) announcement that he will not seek another term in 2022. “I am running for election in 2022, either for my House seat or for the Alabama Senate seat,” Brooks said in a statement.

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, who led the charge to overturn the election results in Congress, and riled up the crowd at Jan. 6 rally, says of potentially seeking Shelby’s seat: “I am running for election in 2022, either for my House seat or for the Alabama Senate seat,” per @arogDC
