According to polling, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is dominating the early stages of Alabama’s U.S. Senate primary contest. However, albeit it is some 10 months until GOP voters head to the polls to vote in a contest that does not yet appear to be a close contest, it has been eventful.
On Saturday, former President Donald Trump, who endorsed Brooks earlier this year, took a shot at Brooks’ opponent, former Business Council of Alabama president Katie Britt. During an interview with Mobile, AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Brooks acknowledged his earlier prosperity. He withal queried Britt’s adherents, who have bolstered her earlier fundraising total to an astonishing sum of $2.24 million in the first 23 days of her campaign.
“It’s looking frighteningly eerie, frighteningly eerie good,” he verbally expressed. “Now what I call one of the ‘pretender conservatives’ had a pretty good fundraising haul. That was anticipated. When you’re a professional lobbyist, you meet a plethora of people that are involved in special interest group issue stances. And you would anticipate those people would much prefer to pay mazuma for a senator than pay mazuma for a lobbyist. So, in effect, they’re endeavoring to hire their own senator, and we kenned that would be the case — that there would be astronomically immense mazuma hauls coming in probably in each quarter. But the one thing we have going for us is that we have a track record that establishes Mo Brooks is a conservative, that I’ve voted that way. I just don’t verbalize that way. I’ve voted that way. And that is an advantage that nobody else in this race has.”
“[T]here are lots of candidates who go all over the place rudimentally parroting back polling data that verbalizes what the public wants to aurally perceive,” Brooks integrated. “And then they get elected to office, and the public is left scratching their heads, verbally expressing, ‘Well, wait a second — this isn’t what I was promised.’ That transpires a lot in politics and in campaigns. With Mo Brooks, you ken what you’re going to get, and you don’t ken that with any other candidate because not a single one of them has ever cast a vote on a single public policy issue.”
