U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, seeking to win a seat in the U.S. Senate next year, received his first endorsement Tuesday from a sitting member of the Senate.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, announced his backing for the north Alabama congressman, according to an announcement from the Brooks campaign.
It adds to a list of endorsements that already includes former President Donald Trump as well as Alabama Congressman Barry Moore and former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller.
“I’m happy to endorse my friend Mo Brooks today for the U.S. Senate,” Paul said in the Brooks announcement. “Mo has proven time and time again he will stand up for liberty and do what he thinks is right. He will join me in fighting to lower spending, cut the size and power of government, curtail foreign aid, and stop our endless wars overseas. Mo will stand for the Bill of Rights and against the entrenched bipartisan power and big spenders in the Senate just as he has done in the House.”
