Representative Mo Brooks, candidate for a Senate seat in Alabama, said if he won the seat, he would be hesitant to support Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell.
“Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL), a candidate for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat up for grabs later this year, is not bullish on the prospects of current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) resuming the role of Majority Leader should the Republicans take the Senate in November,” reports Breitbart News.
“Brooks said that he would be reluctant to support McConnell if he won Alabama’s Senate seat. However, he added a caveat that there was a ‘slim’ possibility he could support McConnell if his opponent for the leadership role were one of the ‘open-border, left-wing types,'” reported Breitbart News.
“There’s going to be significant resistance to Mitch McConnell being the Republican leader of the United States Senate,” Brooks said.
“Even Lindsey Graham has suggested Mitch McConnell should not be the leader if he is not going to be able to work things out with Donald Trump,” Brooks added. “And I have seen nothing to suggest that he is going to be able to work things out with Donald Trump. But we’ll see how it plays out in that regard.”
“Keep in mind that if you look at the Real Clear Politics average of all of these people who are prominent in Washington, D.C., Mitch McConnell far and away has the worst unfavorable-favorable ratio,” Brooks added. “We need someone who has more respect of the American people that we’re trying to persuade of the righteousness of the cause.”
