Mo Brooks wants to replace Mitch McConnell as Senate leader

Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks has pledged to vote against House Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as the Senate’s top GOP leader in a new political ad.

“In a 90-second ad, Brooks told voters that if he were elected to the Senate, he would not vote for McConnell to maintain his position as the chamber’s GOP leader — an apparent attempt to win back the favor of former President Donald Trump,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“Today, I unveil my pledge to America to fire Mitch McConnell. If elected to the Senate, I will not vote for Mitch McConnell for leader,” Brooks said in the video.

“America can’t afford a Senate leader who is a weak-kneed, debt junkie, open-border, RINO Republican and who, worse yet, sells out America for special interest group cash,” he added.

Brooks has the endorsement of former President Donald Trump, but some of his words have led Trump to question whether to continue his endorsement.

The latest ad may be designed to appeal to Trump as much as to voters as Brooks likely sees the former president’s support as critical to his success in the state’s Republican primary.
