Fresh off of her Republican primary election runoff victory earlier in the week, Republican U.S. Senate nominee Katie Britt laid out her strategy going forward to November for her general election match-up against Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Will Boyd.
FarmPAC endorsed candidates did really well in the major party runoff elections on Tuesday,
“I would be remiss if I did not congratulate the Alabama Democratic Party for helping to ensure that the Democrat nominee in the Republican Primary won. So, congratulations to the Alabama Democratic party. They now have two nominees in the general election, Will Boyd and my opponent [Katie Britt] who they endorsed and helped push over the finish line both in the primary and in the runoff.”, Brooks said.
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.
On Monday's broadcast of Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks called the Alabama Republican Party to formally disqualify former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt as a Republican candidate.
"Katie is a strong conservative who will fight to expand 21st century opportunity for every American family and preserve the American Dream for generations to come.," said Sen. Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) endorsing Katie Britt for Senate in Tuesday's Republican primary runoff election,.
During an interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a Mo Brooks supporter, called on Alabama Republican voters to discount former President Donald Trump's endorsement of Katie Britt.
Listen to 1819 News Editor-in-Chief Ray Melick on The Jeff Poor Show as they discuss the Trump endorsement of Katie Britt, the county-by-county ground game that Britt has run, and the apparent difference between Alabama and Florida in that Florida has competitive political races and Republicans there contrast themselves from Democrats.
"Our momentum is surging because hardworking families in communities in every corner of Alabama know that I will fight relentlessly for our values and our people in the Senate," said Katie Boyd Britt.
Not all of former President Donald Trump's allies were pleased with his decision to endorse former Business Council of Alabama president and CEO Katie Britt last week.
"Katie has a proven record of fighting to grow good-paying jobs and 21st century opportunity in every corner of our state, and we know that she will be a champion for rural Alabama in the Senate," the Alabama Electric Cooperatives said in a statement endorsing Katie Britt for U.S. Senate.
On Friday, former Business Council of Alabama President and CEO Katie Britt's U.S. Senate effort got a shot in the arm from former President Donald Trump.
"Gun grabbers use so-called 'red flag laws' as a gateway to push their disarming agenda," Katie Britt told the 1819 News following passage of national Red Flag legislation. "In reality, a 'red flag law' is an abridgment of the Second Amendment and can be abused to take away the right to self-defense with no due process.
Last week, outgoing Alabama Democratic Party executive director Wade Perry spoke very highly of Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Katie Britt, fueling speculation that Democrats crossed over to vote in the Republican Party's primary back on May 24.
The Alabama Republican Party Steering Committee sought out answers from Katie Britt’s campaign after a statement was made over the weekend, claiming she was helpful to Doug Jones, a Democrat who won Alabama’s U.S. Senate race in 2017.
Both the Katie Britt and Mo Brooks' campaigns have asked former President Donald J. Trump for his endorsement in the June 21 Republican runoff; but it is possible that he won't endorse either of them.
Alabama Democratic Party executive director Wade Perry's last day is Tuesday, but before his departure, he let it be known to the world that he thinks highly of Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Katie Britt.
"Mo Brooks will undoubtedly resort to embarrassing our state with false, desperate personal attacks. We are seeing his lies get more blatant by the day, and there is no way that a constructive or substantive debate can occur with his continually devolving behavior. Katie won’t participate in the final circus act of Mo’s career," said Katie Britt spokesperson Sean Ross announcing Britt's refusal to debate.
“I’m thrilled to have the endorsement of Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” stated Britt. “Sarah is a conservative fighter and an unwavering voice for the America First movement."
One of the glaring differences between the two candidates in the Republican U.S. Senate runoff later this month is U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) dedicates a lot of effort to comparing himself to his opponent, former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt.
As Alabama’s next U.S. Senator, I’ll proudly work with Senator Cotton to fight for these important priorities an d defend our Christian conservative values,” Katie Britt said following Sen. Cotton's endorsement.
Even though it has yet to be settled with a June 21 primary looming, campaign finance tracking website OpenSecrets.org reports Alabama's U.S. Senate race was the third-most expensive of the 2022 election cycle thus far.
During an appearance on Huntsville radio WVNN's "The Dale Jackson Show," U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), who will face former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt in next month's GOP senatorial primary runoff election, accused Britt of soliciting Democrat votes in Tuesday's primary. He argued she might attempt it again in the runoff.
Alabama lawmakers and hopefuls are reacting to the deadly school shooting in Texas that left 19 children and two adults dead.
