(WAFF) - Congressman Mo Brooks has a heavy hitter in his corner for his re-election bid for U.S. Congress next week.

Brooks called a special conference Wednesday morning to announce President Trump is giving him the official White House endorsement, following a call he says he received Tuesday night.

In a statement, President Trump said, "Mo Brooks is a fighter! He fought by my side to secure our border, rebuild our military, cut your taxes, repeal Obamacare, and build the wall."

This comes after a rival's ad shows Brooks badmouthing President Trump. Brooks says that ad was taken out of context and came after an interview he gave while campaigning for Ted Cruz, before Trump won the Republican nomination.
