More of President Trump’s candidates won all over the map on Tuesday and even those who did not receive his endorsement still ran on his policies. His biggest victory was in Alabama, where Katie Britt beat Mo Brooks.
Fox: “The race is set for Alabama voters to decide this November who will be their next U.S. senator following Katie Britt’s victory over Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., in Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff election.
In her first interview following her election victory, Britt described the ‘surreal moment’ to Fox News Digital and said she is unsure of whether it has ‘quite sunk in’ that she will represent the Republican Party in the general election in the Yellowhammer State on Nov. 8.”
THANK YOU, Alabama!

“I’m so excited,” she said, adding that Alabamians “want new blood.” She received the president’s endorsement.
“We were so proud to earn that endorsement and also know that people know – and obviously the president said – that we’re the best to fight for the America first agenda,” she said. “That’s what I’m hearing all over the state. People miss those policies.”
Britt said it is important to “earn the vote” of Alabamians and said she wants to be elected because she is the “best person for the job.”
“It is so exciting to see so many young conservatives and young women step up and say, ‘It’s time,'” Britt said. “What it boils down to, is we look at this country under Joe Biden’s leadership and every single thing is moving in the wrong direction. As mamas, we know if we don’t step up and fight, there’s not going to be anything left for our children to fight for.” Britt said the Republican Party is “no longer the party of big business” but now is the party of “working Americans.”
She will face Democrat Will Boyd in the fall. “Many Alabamians came to me and said I’m the only hope at this time, so it pushed me forward and here I am today,” said Boyd, who was born in South Carolina. “I have a lot of Republicans, independents, and Democrats who are actually looking forward to me going forward, winning this Senate seat.”
“We have a middle class that needs to grow and move forward,” Boyd said. “I wanna grow the middle class from the middle out, from the ground up. I want to end poverty as much as possible.”
“I want to see equal justice for all,” he added. “We still see where there’s not fairness, not equity in the court systems where African Americans’ voices are not being heard… And of course our environment is important… We know climate change is real.” The climate change scam is as real as his chances in November.
