Katie Britt, the Trump-endorsed Alabama Senate candidate has officially defeated her Primary opponent, RINO Congressman Mo Brooks on Tuesday night.
Britt earned 63.01% of the votes vs Brooks who had just 36.99% votes before the race was called off.
President Trump, who had formally endorsed Brooks until he went on to dismiss the alleged voter fraud in the 2020 elections by saying that it was time to “move on” from the 2020 election.
After pulling back his Brooks endorsement in March, the former President said: “When I endorsed Mo Brooks, he took a 44-point lead and was unstoppable. He then hired a new campaign staff who ‘brilliantly’ convinced him to ‘stop talking about the 2020 Election.'”
“Very sad but, since he decided to go in another direction, so have I, and I am hereby withdrawing my Endorsement of Mo Brooks for the Senate. I don’t think the great people of Alabama will disagree with me. Election Fraud must be captured and stopped, or we won’t have a Country anymore.” He added.
In the main primary election, Brooks was placed second behind Britt but because neither of the Republican candidates had 50% of the vote, the election was extended to a run-off.
President Trump then announced his endorsement for Britt on June 10th saying, “Mo has been wanting it back ever since, but I cannot give it to him! Katie Britt, on the other hand, is a fearless America First Warrior.”
“I’m thankful to have President Trump’s endorsement and strong support,” Britt said in a statement to POLITICO. “President Trump knows that Alabamians are sick and tired of failed, do-nothing career politicians. It’s time for the next generation of conservatives to step up and shake things up in Washington to save the country we know and love for our children and our children’s children.” She added at the time of receiving this endorsement earlier this month.
Britt has served as a Senate aide to Republican Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, who announced his retirement earlier last year. Britt was Senator Shelby’s chief of staff before becoming president of the Business Council of Alabama.
Former Trump adviser Steve Cortes has also endorsed Britt and has campaigned with her on multiple occasions.
Katie Britt will now face off against Democratic candidate Will Boyd in November General elections. Boyd is a former Democratic Party county chair.
