Sunday, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) took to TruthSocial to seek the re-endorsement from President Donald Trump in his bid for the U.S. Senate.

In March, Trump pulled his endorsement of Brooks for going what Trump called "woke" regarding the 2020 presidential election. Despite losing the Trump endorsement, Brooks rallied and secured a second-place finish in last month's Republican U.S. Senate primary, which earned him a spot in the June 21 runoff.

Brooks faces former Business Council of Alabama President and CEO Katie Britt in the runoff election.

Brooks blamed U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for his early struggles, adding that he surged from his earlier deficit once McConnell backed off the attacks.

He asked for help from "MAGA Nation" to re-earn the endorsement.

Brooks had a different message regarding Trump on the heels of the un-endorsement back in March.

He appeared on Huntsville radio WVNN's "The Dale Jackson Show" and said Trump's decision had allowed him to "shed" a burden and said the former president had damaged his campaign.

"I'm not upset with what has happened," Brooks said. "This has allowed me to shed myself of a burden. Donald Trump, for the last six to seven months, has done more damage to our campaign than anybody else in America, and so we don't have to worry about that. Whatever damage he's going to do has ended."
