Former Congressman Mo Brooks came out over the weekend to support former Vice President Mike Pence's upcoming bid for U.S. President.
Brooks and former President Donald Trump had a falling out during Brooks' 2022 run for U.S. Senate, in which Brooks lost Trump's endorsement and the election against now-U.S. Sen Katie Britt (R-Montgomery).
Trump said he pulled the endorsement after claiming Brooks "went woke" by failing to continue the narrative that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.
Trump is currently leading in preliminary polling for the 2024 presidential primary, with Pence trailing far behind. Trump also recently spoke at the Alabama GOP's Summer Dinner, which brought in record numbers for the state party. In recent weeks, several state and federal lawmakers gave Trump their endorsement.
Despite the widespread support for Trump in Alabama, Brooks has recently been on a social media posting spree drawing a contrast between the former president and former vice president.
