In his first campaign ad for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, Alabama 5th District U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks has made clear his intentions should he be elected — he’ll fight every spending bill that doesn’t include funding for President Donald Trump‘s promised Mexican border wall.
“I am willing to do whatever it takes in the Senate to ensure President Trump’s promise to the American people is kept,” Brooks said in the ad. “I’ll aggressively oppose every single spending bill that doesn’t fund the border wall and expose every Republican establishment Senator who sides with the Democrats against our President.”
In the ad entitled, Build the Wall,” Brooks goes so far as to vow to filibuster by reading the King James Bible until the wall is funded.
“And if I have to filibuster on the Senate floor, I’ll even read the King James Bible until the wall is funded. And you know what, Washington could benefit from that.”
Brooks is polling as one of the top three candidates for the seat, along with appointed U.S. Sen. Luther Strange and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.
The new will soon be on the air statewide.
Watch the ad below:
Hi, I’m Mo Brooks, candidate for the Senate, and I approve this message.
President Trump promised a wall to keep us safe and to protect American jobs for American workers. But even some establishment Republicans are blocking the way.
Elect me to the Senate and I’ll fight every spending bill that doesn’t fund that wall.
And if I have to filibuster on the Senate floor, I’ll even read the King James Bible until the wall is funded. And you know what, Washington could benefit from that.
We’re going to build that wall, or you’ll know the name of every Republican who surrenders to the Democrats to break my filibuster.
I give you my word, and I don’t give my word lightly.
