Following his crushing defeat to rival Katie Britt in the Alabama GOP Senate primary runoff, Trump-undorsed Congressman Mo Brooks on Tuesday night had some not-at-all sanguine or conciliatory words for all those who conspired to stack the deck against him – except Trump, of course.
“It’s always appropriate to congratulate the winners, and some of these winners might be a little bit unexpected, but I’d be remiss if I did not congratulate the Alabama Democratic Party for helping to ensure that the Democratic nominee in the Republican primary won,” Brooks said to fans at gathered at a gun range. Brooks continued his bitter tirade, by congratulating “the Democrats. They now have two nominees in the general election. Another group I’d be remiss if I did not congratulate are special interest groups generally and more specifically the special interest groups that support open borders and cheap foreign labor. They worked hard for their values.”
Brooks then called Britt a “RINO” and said he was looking forward to retiring from Congress to spend more time with his grandchildren, which pretty obviously was his second choice since he’d been looking forward to winning the primary and at least one six year term in the Senate.
