Brooks has scheduled the event for 6 p.m. Central Monday at the Huntsville Bullet and Barrel Indoor Shooting Range and Training Facility, located at 3252 Leeman Ferry Road Southwest in Huntsville. The event is free and open to the public, according to the press release.
“Brooks will be joined by former Senior White House Policy Advisor to President Donald J. Trump, Stephen Miller,” the press release said.
“Following the event, Brooks and Miller will hold a brief media availability.”
In recent days, reporters at CNN, the Birmingham-based AL.com, and the Huntsville-based WHNT have all speculated that Brooks intends to run for the U.S. Senate seat from which U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) will soon retire.
“In interviews with an array of Republicans in the state, one thing is clear: the 66-year-old Brooks could easily emerge as the front-runner for the GOP nomination in a state that Trump won by 26 points last fall,” CNN reported.
“And if he gets the coveted Trump endorsement, the icing could be on the cake, potentially paving the way to a primary victory and ensuring the seat stays red, according to multiple senior Republicans.”
According to Brooks’ congressional website, his constituents have elected him to public office 13 times
“As such, Mo Brooks has successfully helped carry the GOP banner in general elections more than any other current Alabama office-holder,” according to Brooks’ website.
“The public has elected Mo Brooks four times as a state legislator, four times as a Madison County Commissioner, and five times as a U.S. Congressman.”
