The guy who represents Alabama’s 5th congressional district is running for Senate.

A conservative firebrand and staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump who came under fire for remarks preceding the attack on the U.S. Capitol has joined the Alabama GOP primary field to replace Sen. Richard Shelby.
U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks announced his entry into the race Monday night. Brooks joins former Trump ambassador Lynda Blanchard in the GOP primary, which is expected to attract a number of other hopefuls. Shelby announced earlier this year that he wouldn’t seek reelection in 2022.
Brooks has been criticized, and two House Democrats have proposed he be censured by Congress for his fiery speech at the pro-Trump rally before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
“Today is the day that American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass,” Brooks said at the Save America rally. Brooks has said his remarks were only intended as a pep talk for the next election cycle and that critics have misrepresented them.
Brooks said Stephen Miller, who was Trump’s top immigration policy adviser, would be his special guest at the “Campaign Rally and Announcement,” held at a Huntsville gun range.
