Congressman Mo Brooks

FreedomWorks for America on Thursday announced that they have endorsed Congressman Mo Brooks in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race.

“A four-time recipient of FreedomWorks’ FreedomFighter Award and leading voice in the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mo Brooks has proven his commitment to economic freedom and individual liberty during his time in the U.S. House,” said Noah Wall, executive director of FreedomWorks for America. “We know that he will continue to advocate for conservative values in the Senate and be a powerful champion for getting our country’s fiscal health back on track; empowering free market-centered healthcare; fighting back against the radical left’s control of institutions; and stopping the Biden border disaster.”

“FreedomWorks activists are excited to put our grassroots muscle behind Brooks’ candidacy and look forward to helping him join the ranks of Senate leadership,” Wall said. “In Brooks, the people of Alabama have an advocate of whom they can be proud.”

The endorsement by FreedomWorks for America follows earlier endorsements of Brooks by Club for Growth and former President Donald Trump.

Brooks currently is in his sixth term representing Alabama’s 5th Congressional District. Brooks previously served on the Madison County Commission, the Alabama House of Representatives and as a prosecutor.

Brooks faces a crowded Republican Party primary field that includes: small businesswoman Jessica Taylor, former Business Council of Alabama President and CEO Katie Boyd Britt and former Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard.

Incumbent Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, has announced that he is retiring after his current term ends. Shelby has endorsed Britt, who previously served as his chief of staff. Shelby recently reiterated his support for Britt after Trump publicly criticized him for it.

“Absolutely, she’s the best qualified and the best hope we’ve got in the state,” Shelby responded when reporters asked if he still supported Britt.

The Republican Primary will be May 24, 2022.
