New SLF Ad Blasts Alabama Republican for Criticism of Trump

The new ad, "Trust," hits Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) for his past never-Trump statements.

The Senate Leadership Fund (SLF), a PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-KY), released a new ad titled “Trust” on Wednesday that targets Rep. Mo Brooks, a Republican running in Alabama’s Senate special election to replace now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The ad, which highlights Brooks’ past “Never Trump” statements, is part of SLF’s $2.7 million statewide ad buy. The group is backing Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), the incumbent who is filling out the remainder of Sessions’ term.

“I don’t think you can trust Donald Trump with anything he says,” Brooks is heard saying in the ad.

Images of Brooks appear alongside Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) while the ad’s narrator says, “They all attacked Donald Trump, trying to stop him.”

“Mo Brooks even refused to endorse Donald Trump for President,” the narrator continues.

Viewers then see a clip of Brooks saying, “A lot of people who have supported Donald Trump, they’re going to regret having done so.”

“Mo Brooks attacked President Trump, siding with them,” the ad says, referencing the Democrats in the ad, “not Alabama conservatives.”
