There were primaries and run-off elections this week, in states like Alabama and Minnesota. The results were interesting and possibly telling about the future.
In Alabama, a run-off election took place between Mo Brooks and Katie Britt. Initially, Mo Brooks had Donald Trump’s endorsement, but Trump pulled his endorsement when Brooks said he wanted to move forward from 2020.
Trump was no longer happy with Brooks, and he threw his endorsement behind Brooks’ challenger, Katie Britt. Britt is a former Chief of Staff to the Senator, Richard Shelby, who is retiring from the seat the two were both running for. Shelby also threw his support behind Britt. Britt won the run-off election. Upon winning she tweeted: “THANK YOU, Alabama! My family and I are truly grateful. Words cannot express our thanks. The future of our great state is bright!”
Trump called Britt “a fearless America First Warrior.” Britt told Fox News Digital in an interview that she was “excited and grateful” to have Trump’s support as “people are ready for new blood.”
Katie Britt hopes to become Alabama’s first female Senator in November. She will face Democrat Will Boyd in the midterm elections. The last time a Democrat won a Senate seat in Alabama was in 1992, and that Senator changed parties two years later. That Senator is Richard Shelby.
Odds are that Britt will become the next Senator in Alabama since Alabama is quite a red state. She won’t likely need Trump’s endorsement to win the general election. Do you think his endorsement helped her win the run-off?
