Republican Rep. Mo Brooks defends his right to be shot by a crazy person in new campaign ad

"Inside the Republican conference, Mitch McConnell has got to go", he said.

Alabama's senior U.S. Senator Richard Shelby told Roll Call, "Jeff Sessions is the attorney general right now", adding, "The primary is in two weeks".

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan said state law does not allow a candidate to be replaced by the party for a general election unless the nominee withdraws. A spokeswoman for Sessions did not comment, but odd fired back in an emailed statement to Morning Consult Wednesday afternoon.

"This is what a candidate does when he learns he's plummeted to a distant third and is desperate to get attention", unusual said in a statement to Morning Consult. But so all Brooks was doing was saying, "look, I am on Jeff Sessions" side in this feud and I don't care how much Luther Strange says I dislike Trump.

He added that he thought Trump was a much better option in a general election setting than Hillary Clinton but said some of Trump's more "mercurial dispositions", such as the way his administration communicates with US allies and enemies, have given him "serious reservations".

Brooks made no secret his critique was personal.

The BidaskClub Upgrades G-III Apparel Group, LTD. (GIII) to Hold
BidaskClub downgraded G-III Apparel Group, LTD. from a "hold" rating to a "sell" rating in a research note on Saturday, July 8th. About 486,337 shares traded. 06/06/2017 - G-III Apparel Group, LTD. had its "buy" rating reiterated by analysts at Wunderlich.

One recent ad released by a political action committee backing unusual portrayed Brooks as being linked to liberal Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The Republican primary for the seat has become a proxy battle over the direction of the GOP.

In response to Brooks' critiques, a spokesman for McConnell pointed to a post on Twitter by Josh Holmes, McConnell's former chief of staff and campaign manager.

The goal of Strange's supporters is to diminish Brooks ahead of the August 15 contest.

A poll released Wednesday shows odd ahead with 33 percent of the vote, Moore in second at 26 percent, and Brooks in third at 16 percent.

The offer to withdraw comes days after Brooks began airing a campaign ad that draws on dramatic audio from the shooting attack that badly wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. "He does not add stability & friendship in the White House". But President Trump should raise his reservations with Attorney General Sessions privately, man to man, one on one, not publicly scorn a great man like this.

KCG Holdings Inc. Purchases New Stake in Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN)
As of quarter end Sumitomo Mitsui Asset Management Company, Ltd had acquired a total of 18,049 shares growing its stake by 195.2%. Calvert Investment Management Inc increased Cola European Partners stake by 16,651 shares to 325,354 valued at $10.22M in 2016Q4.

Wednesday's breakfast forum was meant to focus on immigration policy.

In a statement following defeat of the measure on a 49-51 vote, the California Democrat says, "The American people have spoken loud and clear against the higher costs and monstrous cruelty of Trumpcare".

Brooks also said he still backs Trump's proposed border wall, his support of which has made its way into a commercial his campaign is airing statewide. But on that issue, he criticized Trump on Wednesday for not having sent anything to Congress "that is consistent with that promise". "There's a difference between candidate Trump and President Trump". "It's been six months - I've yet to see it".

Several Republicans pleaded for their colleagues not to give up, even as President Donald Trump blasted the vote.

Sen. Strange's office and Roy Moore's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Sen. Luther Strange, the appointed incumbent, has the backing of McConnell and the Republican Party establishment in Alabama's GOP primary. Unusual didn't cast a single vote in opposition to the bill, nor did he even float any major public reservations to it. Brooks certainly can attack McConnell as a failed strategist for not rounding up 50 of 52 votes for Brooks' preferred outcome, but how is any of that Strange's fault?
