During an interview with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, former President Donald Trump said he was disappointed with U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and his performance in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race.
Trump expressed concern over what Brooks said at last year’s rally in Cullman where he told rally-goers to “look ahead” to the midterm elections instead of just looking back to the 2020 Presidential election.
Thursday, during an interview on WVNN’s “The Yaffee Program,” U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) U.S. Senate campaign co-chairman Stan Mcdonald reiterated that Trump and Brooks are in agreement about what happened in the 2020 election.
“That election was stolen, and Joe Biden, he is an illegitimate President,” he protested. “Now, that is exactly the logical conclusion that both President Trump and Mo Brooks share.”
Mcdonald then said that Brooks was the only candidate who will say publicly the election was stolen.
“Mo Brooks is the only candidate for Senate that says that,” he explained. “The other two cannot say that.”
The co-chair said that while the other two candidates will address election issues, they won’t come out and say directly that the election was stolen.
“One of them has said of course we all believe in election integrity and how important it is, and the other one was asked about it at a meeting and said no more questions. Walked away from it. So it’s not even a close call,” he concluded.
Mcdonald also believes that Trump will continue to support Brooks in the Senate race.
“I think President Trump, when he looks at it, will understand that Mo is the only principled conservative in the race that will stick by him and stand by him,” he said. “He’s examining some things right now it sounds like, if we’re to believe the whole story, but upon close examination, what he’s going to find is this is the way Mo Brooks wins.”
