Tuesday, May 30, 2017, the Alabama Patriots announced their endorsement of Congressman Mo Brooks for United States Senate. The endorsement comes two weeks after Congressman Brooks announced his candidacy for the Senate and following a thorough interview with the Commander of the Alabama Patriots, Danny B. Joyner.
Commander Joyner said in a statement, “In these trying times we believe God has provided men of honor and integrity to stand in the gap for our beloved Alabama and our Christian nation. Congressman Mo Brooks is the man to replace our friend and fellow Patriot Jeff Sessions as the next United States Senator from Alabama.”
Congressman Brooks said, “I am honored to have the Alabama Patriots endorsement for the United States Senate. I am running for the United States Senate because America’s status as the greatest nation in world history is at risk, because Congress is failing the American people, and because I am the only candidate for the Senate who has a record of proven conservative leadership.”
Commander Joyner added, “As critical to our nation as the choice of Neil Gorsuch was to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, we the Alabama Patriots feel it is just as critical to support & elect Mo Brooks to the US Senate. His record needs no defending when it comes to the foundational building blocks of our republic in matters of our faith, family & freedom.”
Joyner continued, “Congressman Brooks stands out and apart from all other Senate candidates in two key respects. First, Mo Brooks is the only candidate in the race with a proven record of conservative leadership who is renowned for standing up against special interests and the Washington insiders and special interest groups that constitute Washington’s ‘Swamp.’ Second, Mo Brooks’ impeccable ethics record stands out. Not once has a valid or even an invalid, politically motivated ethics complaint been filed against Mo Brooks with the Alabama Ethics Commission or any Federal government ethics agency during Mo Brooks’ thirty years of public service as a Tuscaloosa Assistant District Attorney, Circuit Court law clerk, Madison County District Attorney, Alabama legislator, Madison County Commissioner, and US Congressman. Mo Brooks’ proven, impeccable ethics record is exactly what Alabama needs in the US Senate.”
Brooks said, “Brooks continued, “Having the support of the Alabama Patriots is a boon to my bid for the Senate. As a Constitutional conservative, I will defend Americans’ First Amendment Right to freedom of religion. As a father and grandfather, I will fight in the Senate to leave my children and grandchildren a financially sound nation where they can prosper, and as a strong defender of freedom, I stand firmly against increasing the size of the federal government. As my past record proves, I have and will fight in the United States Senate to protect and promote faith, family, freedom and our foundational principles that have combined to make America the greatest nation in world history. As I have shown in the past, I have no hesitancy standing up against special interests and Washington insiders who put their own self-interests above America’s interests.”
Joyner said, “We have presented a copy of the United States Constitution to Congressman Brooks and we are very confident he will defend it. We will work tirelessly for Mo. Our children and grandchildren are counting on us. The Alabama Patriots GO WITH MO.”
Mo Brooks is one of ten Republicans seeking the seat of former U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R) who left the Senate to become US Attorney General.
The Alabama Patriots claims to be the largest tea party group in the State.
The Special major party primaries will be on August 15, 2017.
