TPPCF Endorses Mo Brooks for U.S. Senate
ATLANTA, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, announcing that the Super PAC associated with the nation’s largest Tea Party group has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the Alabama special election.
“When Sen. Jeff Sessions accepted President Trump’s nomination to serve as Attorney General, we at Tea Party Patriots were of two minds – on the one hand, we were thrilled, because we knew Jeff Sessions would return to the Department of Justice a reverence for the Constitution and the rule of law that had been sorely lacking through eight years of the Obama Administration; on the other hand, we were concerned over who would replace him in the Senate, as he has been a champion for our principles over the course of his two decades in office.
“Then Congressman Mo Brooks decided to run for the seat, and we were thrilled again.
“On virtually every issue that is important to Tea Party Patriots activists, Mo Brooks has been a fearless leader and a fighter. He has fought to secure our borders and strengthen enforcement against illegal immigration; he has been a strong defender of the 2nd Amendment; he has championed our efforts to fully repeal ObamaCare and return us to health care freedom; and he has fought for trade and tax policies necessary to defend and grow good American jobs.
“It’s no wonder he’s been endorsed by conservatives like Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham, and members of his own House Republican Conference who know him well, including U.S. Reps. Mike Rogers, Mark Meadows, and Lamar Smith. Both NumbersUSA and the NRA have given him ‘A’ ratings, and he has the strongest conservative voting record in the Alabama delegation.
“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Mo Brooks for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, and I urge all voters in Alabama to make a plan to be a voter for him in the August 15 special primary election, and, if necessary, the September 26 special runoff, and the December 12 special general election.”
