After a Politico article suggested U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) may be the new leader of the GOP post-Donald Trump, some have speculated whether or not the freshman senator would ever make a run for the White House.

During a friendly interview Tuesday on "Alabama's Morning News with JT," Britt was asked about her presidential ambitions, where she downplayed any notion she was planning to run anytime soon.

"I'm a long way from that," Britt told host JT. "As I shared with you, I still get ID'd when I try and go vote every day on behalf of the people of Alabama. So I think, incrementally, we're a long way from that."

Britt denied even having the conversation with her family that she might one day run for president.

"Oh, gosh no. What we're doing right now is just focused on serving the people of Alabama," she said. "JT, we got a lot of work ahead of us, and you know I believe in keeping your head down and working hard. I am learning. I am trying to make an impact both obviously for the people of the state and the people of this country. I mean you look at Biden, and he is such a disaster that I could see why people would think anybody should be president but him because he continues to ruin this nation… It's a hot mess, so I am sure everyone is looking for anyone, just anyone, to get him out of there."

She concluded, "I don't want to be pigeonholed into anything. What I want to do is go serve the people of Alabama."
