HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Congressman Mo Brooks (R) will serve another two years as the U.S. Representative for Alabama’s 5th congressional district. This election victory marks his fifth House race win.
Brooks defeated opponent Peter Joffrion (D).
“Well it’s a humbling experience when the people of a state or country decide that you are the one who’s best suited to represent them in an elected position, in this case people of the Tennessee Valley sending me back to D.C,” Brooks said. “I want them to know that I appreciate the nod of confidence they have given by what appears to be a fairly large margin, and I’m going to continue to keep doing what they want me to do.”
Brooks’ message was focused on three topics: immigration, cutting debt and consistent GOP themes.
In June 2018, he defeated Clayton Hinchman in the Primary Election. He was endorsed by President Donald Trump the week before the election. He ran unsuccessfully in the U.S. Senate race last year, that was ultimately won by Democrat Doug Jones.
Brooks, a native of Huntsville, graduated from Grissom High School in 1972 and later attended Duke University where he double-majored in political science and economics.
Brooks was elected in 2010 and has since held his position.
The 64-year-old has served as a Madison County District Attorney and a Madison County Commission member, before his election to Congress.
