Insurrectionist GOP Rep To Announce US Senate Bid

Newsweek reports:

Rep. Mo Brooks is planning to hold a rally with former President Donald Trump’s advisor Stephen Miller on Monday, as changes to his official campaign page have all but confirmed he will be running for the Senate. Following an update to the congressman’s campaign Facebook page, followers are told to contact “[email protected]” with queries. “Mo Brooks for U.S. Senate is under construction,” the message reads. “Send a Proven Conservative Leader to Senate.”

CNN reports:

Brooks told CNN he has spoken with former President Donald Trump about running for the Alabama Senate seat. When asked if Trump is supportive of the Senate run, Brooks said: “I think that’s for him to announce at the appropriate time.” A Senate seat will be vacated by GOP Sen. Richard Shelby, who announced in February he would not run for reelection in 2022, after serving 42 years in Congress.
