U.S. Senate candidate Katie Boyd Britt announced that her Republican 2022 campaign for the U.S. Senate has raised more than $3.75 million since she first announced her candidacy in early June.
The Britt campaign has raised more money than any of Alabama’s Republican U.S. candidates reported for the 2020 primary and primary runoff periods combined.
The campaign reports that Britt’s most recent Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing for the third quarter will show that she raised over $1.5 million from July 1 through September 30. This comes after Britt raised $2.24 million in just 23 days during the second quarter after announcing her candidacy in June.
“I am grateful and excited that so many Alabamians are jumping on board our campaign to save the America we know and love,” Britt said. “Our Alabama First message is resonating strongly with hardworking families in every corner of our state who want to protect our Christian conservative values and ensure Alabama always has a seat at the table. The enthusiasm we are seeing firsthand on the campaign trail is incredible, and to have so many people all-in this far out from the election is telling.”
Britt’s total does not include any loans, self-funding or campaign-committee-to-campaign-committee transfers.
The former Business Council President and CEO reports that 85% of her funds were raised from Alabamians during the third quarter. Additionally, 95% of Britt’s quarterly haul came from individuals. She enters October with almost $3.3 million in cash-on-hand.
“The people of Alabama are already making it clear that they will elect fresh blood in 2022, and I will work tirelessly every day in the U.S. Senate to make our state proud and to grow good-paying jobs and opportunity for generations to come,” Britt said. “Together, we will preserve the American Dream for our children and our children’s children.”
Britt was recently endorsed by the Alabama Farmers Federation’s FarmPAC. The former BCA boss also has received the endorsement of the Home Builders Association of Alabama.
In total, 88% of Britt’s $3.75 million was raised from Alabamians.
Britt is a native of Coffee County. She is an attorney and former Chief of Staff for incumbent Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Alabama). Shelby is retiring at the end of his current term.
Britt is married to former University of Alabama and New England Patriots offensive lineman Wesley Britt, who is a native of Cullman County. They now live in Montgomery with their two children.
Britt faces a crowded Republican primary field that includes: Mark Dunn, former Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL05), and businesswoman Jessica Taylor. Former Brighton Mayor Brandaun Dean is running for the Democratic nomination for Senate.
The Republican primary is May 24, 2022.
