VIDEO: GOP Rep Vows To Read King James Bible On The Floor Until Border Wall Is Funded
Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks released a Senate campaign ad Sunday, vowing to get the U.S.-Mexico border wall funded and built, even if that means shutting down the government.
In the ad, titled “Build The Wall,” Brooks said he will fight to get the funding necessary to build the border wall, even if he has to hold a filibuster on the floor and read the King James Bible, adding that Washington would benefit from hearing that.
“Elect me to the Senate, and I’ll fight every spending bill that doesn’t fund that wall, Brooks said. “And if I have to filibuster on the Senate floor, I’ll even read the King James Bible until the wall is funded.”
The ad shows a clip of President Donald Trump when he was still on the campaign trail, saying, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.”
“Even some establishment Republicans are blocking the way,” Brooks said. “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.”
Known Trump supporters, such as radio hosts Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin, Fox News Anchor Sean Hannity, and House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows, have all endorsed Brooks in this race.
Brooks is running for current Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old Senate seat. Sessions left the Senate after Trump nominated him to lead the Department of Justice. Alabama’s Senate primary will be held Aug. 15.
