On Monday, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt took to the airwaves to make one last argument for voters to consider for Tuesday's U.S. Senate Republican primary.

Brooks and Britt appeared on Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show" to make a case for their candidacies in the Tuesday election, which will determine who will face Democratic nominee Will Boyd in the November 8 general election.

Brooks urged listeners to consider his record representing Alabama's fifth congressional district, adding that voters could expect the same if he is elected to the U.S. Senate.

"Folks, tomorrow is the election day," Brooks said. "If you can hear my voice be mindful that hundreds of thousands, perhaps a million-plus, have died giving you the right to vote. Please exercise that right to vote tomorrow. Do your homework. Discern who is going to do what's best for America going forward and vote accordingly.

"I'm Mo Brooks. Im the conservative. I'm the Republican. If that is what you want, I ask for your vote tomorrow, Tuesday, June 21. I promise you I will do for the state of Alabama what I have done consistently for the people who have hired me to be their elected official. And I should add my reelection percentage in 11 different races exceeds, on average, 75%. I hope you'll infer from that I've done a good job for the people I represent. I will do the same for the people of the whole of the state of Alabama if the state of Alabama sees fit to elect me tomorrow."

Britt pledged to work for the state and preserve its values should she win the U.S. Senate seat.

"I want to say I believe in this state, I love this state, I love this nation," Britt said. "And I believe the image and the future of this state is on the ballot. We must send someone to D.C. that will fight for our values, that is not afraid to shake things up, and will fight for hard-working Alabamians. It is time for the next generation of conservative fighters to go to D.C. and actually make a difference. When Wesley and I got in this race, we looked at each other, and there were a million people who told us this wasn't possible, or so it seemed. And we knew the nation and the state were worth fighting for.

"And we also knew at 40 years old that if our generation doesn't wake up and step up for our values, for our freedoms, for the American dream, for our children that there's not going to be anything left for our kids to fight for. And so, I would be honored to earn your vote. We are working hard, and I promise you nobody will work harder for you in the United States Senate."
