Senator Mo Brooks (R-AL) is a huge fan of President Trump. Only days before January 6th, Senator Brooks announced that he would challenge electors given to Joe Biden by states where election results were being contested.
“In my judgment, if only lawful votes by eligible American citizens were cast, Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a significant margin, and Congress’s certification should reflect that,” Senator Brooks said.
Tonight, before his massive rally in Cullman, Alabama, Senator Brooks spoke with Newsmax about Trump’s popularity in his state. According to reports, between 20-50K people were expected to show up tonight. When Senator Brooks was asked why Trump is drawing such a large crowd to his state, he gave a long list of reasons, including that Democrats don’t have the same beliefs about America as Trump supporters.

Senator Brooks attempted to convince Trump supporters to keep their eyes focused on the upcoming, critical 2022 election. But, unfortunately, telling the huge crowd to forget about the 2020 election and focus instead on 2022 and 2024 was not such a great idea.
“Some people are despondent about voter fraud in the 2020 election,” he told the crowd. “Folks, put that behind you! Put that behind you!” he said. “Look forward!” he shouted repeatedly. “Beat them in 2022! Beat them in 2024!”
Trump supporters began to drown him out with boos! Senator Brooks tried to change course: “Okay, then look back at it but go forward and take advantage of it!”
“We’ve got to win in 2022! We’ve got to win in 2024!” he shouted.

Republicans who are telling Americans to ignore the voter fraud in 2020 are not doing themselves any favors. American voters know that if we can’t expose what happened in 2020, Republicans will never win another election again.
Senator Brooks is one of the good guys. Lets hope he learned a valuable lesson about how Americans are not willing to let Democrats steal elections without putting up a fight!
