Brooks told the Tuscaloosa Thread despite being an avid Alabama fan, his house is divided during college football season.

Brooks received his law degree from the University of Alabama's School of Law and his wife is a graduate of the university as well. He said his sons did not follow in their footsteps; they attended Auburn University instead.

Brooks also spilled about his must-visit restaurant when in the Druid City - the iconic Tuscaloosa staple, Dreamland Bar-B-Que.

Brooks will appear at the "America First Alabama First Get Out the Vote Rally" at Sokol Park South Thursday night from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The event is being sponsored by the West Alabama Republican Assembly.

Brooks will face Katie Britt in the Republican primary runoff election Tuesday. Both are vying to replace longtime US Senator Richard Shelby, who is not seeking re-election after six terms in that office.
