COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Saturday, one of the most controversial lawmakers in the country will be part of a free speech rally in Coffee County.

Last January, Congressman Mo Brooks spoke to a crowd of mainly Trump supporters before they stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Recently, he announced his candidacy for the Senate Seat held by Alabama Senior Senator Richard Shelby, who announced he will not seek re-election.

Brooks along with Congressman Barry Moore and others will speak at the South Alabama Liberty Freedom of Speech Rally being held at the Coffee County Farm Center in New Brockton on Saturday afternoon.

Although they don’t anticipate any problems, the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office and New Brockton Police have a security plan in place.

“We’re not expecting any kind of problem,” Coffee County Chief Deputy, Ronnie Whitworth said. “However, we do have a security plan in place so we’re ready in case something does happen but we’re not expecting anything.”

The rally will take place from 2 p.m.- 4 p.m. on April 10.
