Just a couple of days ago, a prominent member of the Tea Party reached out to me for supporting Rep. Mo Brooks in the Alabama Senate race to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama. He has my complete and total endorsement!

Brooks was a Cruz guy, but when President Trump won the nomination, he switched over to become a solid Trump supporter and donor. Brooks even asked for McConnell to step down after he couldn’t get Obamacare repealed. Those of the good points.
The bad points could be that President Trump views Brooks as a never-Trumper or someone not loyal. Now, don’t take that as me knowing anything. I know Brooks supports Trump and is 100 percent against McConnell right now.
Lucas Strange is an establishment guy so don’t get that twisted. As I stated before, Brooks is a Tea Partier, make no mistake about that.

Strange has the backing of McConnell and his allies, including the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which has angered other candidates by treating Strange as the incumbent in the special election.
Meanwhile, the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), a super PAC allied with the majority leader, has poured millions into the special election and attacked Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), one of the candidates running against Strange.
Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore currently leads the field of Republican candidates in the polls.
Moore in an ad released Monday slammed McConnell’s “D.C. slime machine,” drawing on Trump’s campaign rhetoric calling to drain the swamp.
Strange was appointed to the seat by former Gov. Robert Bentley (R-Ala.) in February following the confirmation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Trump probably realizes Mo Brooks and Judge Moore are going to split the conservative vote and Strange will slide in. Why do conservatives always do this? One of them needs to drop out for the good of the country.
I have to go against President Trump on this one. Brooks is more capable of handling the switch from House to Senate and would be a great advocate for President Trump.
Please don’t vote for Luther Strange. This is a classic McConnell trick “hey Mr. President if you put in a plug for Luther Strange maybe I can get that legislation you want moving a little better.”
McConnell messed up with Mississippi’s Thad Cochran, and he’s doing it again in this election.
