HUNTSVILLE, Ala — Yesterday, Congressman  Mike Rogers (R-AL-03) announced his endorsement of Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL-05) for the United States Senate seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Congressman Rogers is Chairman of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee, of which Congressman Brooks is a member, and has served Alabama in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2003.

Congressman Mike Rogers said: "Congressman Mo Brooks is one of the most principled conservatives I know.  I am confident Mo Brooks will fight every day in the U.S. Senate for the conservative values we hold dear in Alabama.  Mo is an unwavering proponent of strictly enforcing immigration law, reducing the size and scope of government, and of restoring Constitutional order.  I have served with Mo for 6 years and know him as the fighter that the people of Alabama want to represent them in the U.S. Senate.”

Congressman Mo Brooks said of the endorsement: "I am greatly honored to receive the endorsement of my colleague, Congressman Mike Rogers of Alabama's Third Congressional District.  Mike knows I’m a proven conservative, and has first-hand knowledge of my work ethic and my principled stances on behalf of our state and country."

This adds to Brooks already impressive list of endorsements, including Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity. The Special Election primary will be held on August 15, 2017.
