Congressman Mo Brooks, U.S. 5th Congressional District

I will continue to stand firm for defending our liberties preserved in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, for a strong national defense, for bringing our out-of-control federal spending under control, and for solving the problem with illegal aliens.

America is the greatest nation in history. And now is the time when our county needs us to do our part to solve some tough problems and keep America as the envy of the world.

Thank you for the privilege of serving as your Congressman.  I ask for your continued support and encouragement." - Mo Broooks

AL State Senator Paul Sanford
