It’s time to fire Republican U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell — the current Senate Majority Leader — and replace him with a true conservative who “says what he means and means what he says.” Why? Because President Trump ran on “draining the swamp” and Sen. McConnell of Kentucky is the King of the Swamp.
“If you elect me to the Senate, you have my word: I will not vote for Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader,” declares Alabama’s GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, Mo Brooks.
Congressman Brooks is currently serving Alabama’s 5th Congressional District, which encompasses the Tennessee Valley of North Alabama. Since his election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, he’s been leading the charge for a sustainable, balanced Federal budget, ending illegal immigration, maintaining a strong national defense, and an economic environment that benefits working American families.
In Congress, Mo serves on the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, and Science, Space and Technology committees. He co-chairs the Space Subcommittee and is past Chairman of the Research and Science Education Subcommittee. Mo was a founding member of the Freedom Caucus, a group of fiscal and social conservative members who are fighting to regain the party’s conservative agenda.
“It’s time for a Republican leader in the Senate who will work on behalf of the people of Alabama to enact President Trump’s agenda–not the agenda of the D.C. establishment, said Brooks, who graduated from Duke University and the University of Alabama School of Law.
During McConnell’s reign as “head of the swamp,” the Senate has stalled on key legislation and failed to enact President Donald Trump’s agenda. Just take a look at what’s happening in the Senate this week with health care. For seven years, Republicans have called for repeal and replacement, but it’s now clear they were not telling the truth. McConnell promised to repeal ObamaCare “root and branch” and yet, he has not done it, claims the father of four children and grandfather of eight. He met his wife Martha while they both were undergraduates at Duke.
“What is going on with the Senate? We know President Trump is ready to sign conservative bills. But McConnell can’t or won’t get it done. When your football coach goes 0-12, you fire him. You get a new coach. McConnell can’t get it done. It’s time to change direction. McConnell doesn’t like me saying these kinds of things. In this Senate race, the swamp is fighting back, and the swamp’s candidate is Luther Strange,” Mo Brooks said. A Republican Party candidate for the same senate seat, Strange is known to the media as a “moderate,” which usually means he’ll go along with the establishment’s obsession of “business as usual.”
“That’s why he is running these dishonest attack ads smearing me. He wants Luther Strange. Strange is a yes man who will do what he’s told and Mitch McConnell knows that It’s time for the days of Mitch McConnell and the swamp critters running the show in Washington to come to an end. They’re willing to sell out conservative principles, to sell out the Republican Party, at any cost to appease their Democratic friends, Rep. Brooks noted.
“I will never compromise on my values and my responsibilities to you, the people of Alabama. That’s why I can’t possibly vote for Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader. He’s part of the problem in Washington. Too focused on keeping the power instead of delivering on what he promised the American people: delivering on Trump’s agenda in the Senate,” said Brooks, who believes in the Trump agenda to make America great again.
