Rep. Mo BrooksMorris (Mo) Jackson BrooksBlack Hawk pilot shot down in Somalia jumps into Alabama Senate race Democratic retirements could make a tough midterm year even worse Republicans' mantra should have been 'Stop the Spread' MORE (R-Ala.) said in a new Senate campaign ad that if he is elected, he will fight to have the border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border funded, even threatening a government shutdown in order to do so.
“Elect me to the Senate, and I’ll fight every spending bill that doesn’t fund that wall. And if I have to filibuster on the Senate floor, I’ll even read the King James Bible until the wall is funded,” Brooks said in a Senate campaign ad. Breitbart News first reported the ad on Sunday.
Brooks threatened to go up against his Republican colleagues who are also blocking funding for the border wall.
“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,” he continued.
“President Trump promised a wall to keep us safe and to protect American jobs for American workers,” Brooks continues.
