A repeat of the 2017 U.S. Senate special election upset is looking less and less likely for Democrats as November approaches.
Not only will Democrat U.S Senate nominee Will Boyd face the political headwinds of an unpopular Democrat president in the White House with Joe Biden in the ruby-red state of Alabama, but he will also be at a significant fundraising disadvantage to Republican U.S. Senate nominee Katie Britt.
According to the July 15 quarterly reports filed by the two campaigns, Britt raised $1.33 million in the second quarter to Boyd's $16,824.
The cash-on-hand advantage for Britt is even greater, as she is sitting on $1.2 million to Boyd's $921.
Katie Britt's Q2 filing:
Will Boyd's Q2 filing:
Britt defeated U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) in last month's Republican runoff to secure her party's nomination.
Boyd won his party's nomination in the May primary election by securing 64% of the vote over Brandaun Dean and Lanny Jackson.
Voters can choose between Boyd, Britt or Libertarian Party candidate John Sophocleus on the November 8 ballot.
