After campaigning on firing Pelosi, Brooks expressed a willingness to work with the Democratic leader after being elected.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who is running in Alabama’s upcoming special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vacated seat, has a well-documented history of being a vocal never-Trumper, but what is probably less known is Brooks’ words of respect for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
During Brooks’ campaign, he made a habit of attacking Pelosi on the trail, leading supporters in chants of “Fire Pelosi.”
Brooks told AL.com in 2010, about Pelosi, “how could you not respect her, even if you disagree with her?”
In the same interview, Brooks’ also expressed his willingness to work with Pelosi and Democrats after he was first elected to Congress:
And when he finally bumps into Rep. Pelosi, D-Calif., Brooks said: “I’ll say, ‘Hi. I look forward to working with you.'”
Republican groups were able to use Pelosi’s high unfavorability nationally to successfully tie Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff to the Democratic leader to sink his campaign to represent Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.
