The Katie Britt for Senate campaign announced on Wednesday that Arkansas gubernatorial Republican nominee Sarah Huckabee Sanders has endorsed Britt’s bid for U.S. Senate.

“I’m excited to endorse Katie Britt to serve as the next U.S. Senator for Alabama,” said Sanders in a statement. “Katie is the leader we need in the Senate to fight for our Christian conservative values, advance the America First agenda, defend the sacred right to life, and stand strong against Joe Biden’s radical agenda and reckless policies. I know Katie will be a champion for faith, family, and freedom!”

Sanders served as former President Donald J. Trump’s (R) White House press secretary from 2017 to 2019. She is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R).

Britt thanked Huckabee for the endorsement.

“I’m thrilled to have the endorsement of Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” said Britt. “Sarah is a conservative fighter and an unwavering voice for the America First movement. As Alabama’s Senator, I will fight for policies that put American workers and families first. This includes securing our border and finishing building President Trump’s wall, achieving American energy independence and dominance, fixing the baby formula crisis, onshoring good-paying jobs, shoring up our domestic manufacturing and supply chains, ending the reckless spending that’s pouring fuel on Joe Biden’s inflationary fire, putting money back in everyday Americans’ pockets, and hardening our schools to keep our children safe. Together, we will save the country we know and love for our children and our children’s children.”

Britt has announced a number of high-profile endorsements of her Senate campaign.

Britt is a native of Enterprise Alabama. She has a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from the University of Alabama. She is the former President and CEO of the powerful Business Council of Alabama and is a former chief of staff for U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Alabama). She is married to former Alabama Crimson Tide and New England Patriots football player, Wesley Britt – a native of Cullman County. They reside in Montgomery with their two children.

She faces Congressman Mo Brooks in the June 21 Republican primary runoff.

The eventual Republican nominee will appear on the Nov. 8 general election ballot along with Democrat Dr. Will Boyd and Libertarian John Sophocleus.
