Trump-Backed Katie Britt Beats Rep. Brooks in Alabama GOP Senate Primary
“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.”
Trump once backed Rep. Mo Brooks in the Alabama Republican primary.
Trump changed his mind and endorsed Katie Britt.
Brooks’s numbers slipped. Britt’s numbers went up.
Britt, who has never held public office, came out on top on Tuesday. She worked as Sen. Richard Shelby’s chief of staff, who is retiring, from 2016-2018. Shelby threw his support behind Britt.
If Britt wins in November she will be the first woman to represent Alabama in the Senate:
Ahead of the general election, Britt said she and her team would “continue our grassroots campaign, we’re gonna continue to criss cross the state, meeting with voters and spreading our message.”
Britt said she believes it is important to “earn the vote” of Alabamians and said she hopes to be elected because she is the “best person for the job.”
The newly elected Republican nominee from the state also touted the significance of her victory as it relates to inspiration for other conservative women who aspire to run for office.
“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 will run against Democrat nominee Will Boyd.

to the full extent allowed by law.
Britt is almost certainly going to win in Nov. Though I would hold off on the declaration that she is a full speed ahead member of the populist right simply due to DJT endorsing her.
In Bama we are still dealing with the debacle of Roy Moore. Had DJT endorsed Brooks then he might have saved us a good deal of trouble and Brooks would hold the seat occupied by Tubberville. Then it might have been Tubberville and Britt in this year’s primary.
On the positive side Britt will win in Nov and her campaign is saying all the right things on the issues. She’s young, telegenic, smart, effective in delivering her message. If she is truly on the side of the folks v a McConnell stooge, we can’t ignore that McConnell also pushed her candidacy with lots of $ and support, then she is a big asset for us on the populist right.
Trumps mistake will haunt us
She will be in turtles pocket
How is her winning Trump’s mistake? ( or his right choice?- either way)
Trump’s endorsement (or lack thereof) cannot possibly the only decision criteria for any sane upright walking human. ( if it is, we are no different than the left)
Please explain this to me.
Anyone, and I mean ANYONE backed by the turtle belongs to the turtle
Then explain Oz. An across-the-board leftist who turned Republican about 5 minutes before he announced for the Senate, and who has, since winning the primary, completely eliminated Trump from his campaign. . Literally the only thing he had going for him was Trump’s idiotic endorsement.
Here is the explanation
(FOR THE RECORD- I think Trump was wrong in supporting him, I don’t like or believe Oz so don’t call me an apologist or a supporter. Actually I mostly agree with you but am keeping an open mind)
First, Oz was arguably at the top of the bunch to choose from and the opponent is clearly a socialist. Nothing unusual there.
As far as his “last minute conversion”- I concur with the logic and your sentiment but remind everyone that the same was said both about Trump and the Apostle Paul. Wait and see what he does NOW.
Regarding dropping Trump from his “marketing”- we cannot fall victim to the “right” media any more than we can to the left. Both sell lies and propaganda for profit and the actual fair truth is seldom even mentioned.
Oz is in a blue/purple situation and has others to “win” in order to defeat a greater evil. Trump got him where he needed to be in that hurdle. I can see the logic and strategy in using different tactics as the game has changed now moving toward the general.
I acknowledge the risk of Oz and am not sold on his bonafides myself- I also hope my fears prove false. That doesn’t justify jumping to and holding a wrong position either so I choose to wait and evaluate.
It is a mistake if you are right. I guess we will find out.
As a citizen and a native of the state, I fail to see how that would be true.
Why do Trump endorsed candidates win everywhere except in Georgia? Why don’t they allow ballot auditing in Georgia?
Walker won the primary in Georgia. They just have a way of screwing around with general elections.
It’s a McConnell state. Republicans steal elections too.
In a series of unforced errors Mo Brooks kept downplaying the foul play of the 2020 election saying ‘we should put it behind us’.
What he and many other politicians don’t understand is that while we may have to accept the results of 2020 we can sure as hell still be furious about the gross electoral misconduct on the Dem side, the total lack of corrective measures taken to secure future elections. and lack of criminals jailed over it. Those are the very last things we want to ‘put behind us’ as our supposed leaders have so often in the past. This nation can’t afford it any more.
Brooks has been in Congress since 2011 so is as responsible as anyone for not fixing it before now. Telling us to shut up and accept the status quo (again) was and is a non-player.
He said put the result of the election behind us; the delusional claims that somehow Biden will be removed and DJT ushered back into office if only….reasons. He never said there wasn’t election fraud, irregular procedures and illegal actions or that the various types of shenanigans shouldn’t be investigated, the violations of law prosecuted and ballot security and election integrity laws strengthened. Quite the opposite in fact.
Biden is the POTUS. It hurts and we don’t like it and we are beginning to have more evidence of exactly what the scheme was and how it was executed but there isn’t a mechanism to install DJT due to revelations about the level of shenanigans in 2020. That’s in essence what Brooks said and DJT pulled his endorsement.
For better or worse Britt is almost certainly going to win in Nov instead of the guy who was the first member of the HoR to endorse DJT in the 2016 election cycle. As they said in the movie Dodgeball ‘ it’s a bold strategy, let’s see how it plays out.’
More fatuous BS. We all know what Brooks was intending. Whitewash. 100% whitewash. Move on.
That’s what he said.
The 2020 Presidential election ended the moment Biden took the oath of office as President.
There were many irregularities and deviations from the elections laws of States including some outright election fraud. We should insist upon thoroughly investigating exactly what occurred and demand criminal acts be prosecuted and our election integrity be strengthened.
Both those statements are true and they are not mutually exclusive positions.
“Both those statements are true and they are not mutually exclusive positions.”
Nope, sorry. You simply do not wish to investigate the election. You want us to shut up.
Can you divine other things as well? Like a carnival barker guessing weight or telling fortunes like Miss Cleo?
You couldn’t be more wrong but my question is why you seem to consider any deviation from the pronouncements of DJT as a form of lese majesty?
“…why you seem to consider any deviation from the pronouncements of DJT as a form of lese majesty?”
When you are simply lying, you resort to claiming anyone that tells the truth worships Trump.
neverTrumpers are all the same. Always lying.
We are talking about what Brooks said that caused DJT to pull his endorsement. He simply stated that it’s time to move on from the results of the 2020 election. That’s what caused DJT to pull his endorsement. Brooks never, not once said don’t investigate and prosecution elections fraud. Nor did he ever state we shouldn’t analyze and clean up the ways the d/prog used to game the system.
You and others are projecting hidden meanings onto his statement. Is that because you don’t accept the fact that Biden was sworn in? If so do you believe on the basis of any election fraud discovered that if known prior to certification of electors would have flipped enough electoral votes to DJT could now on that basis alone simply reverse the inauguration of Biden and install DJT as POTUS?
I hope you aren’t delusional enough to believe that could happen. Brooks certainly doesn’t and said so, then DJT pulled his endorsement. That’s the reality.
Sorry chief, that’s political doublespeak.
He (Brooks) did say BIDEN WON.
That statement in and of itself says Biden got more votes than Trump legitimately and honestly. ( the only implied meaning possible for anyone who believes Brandon won the election)
So, by default, if Biden didn’t “win” then the election was STOLEN. ( there is no 3rd option)
In the end, EVERYONE who says Biden “won” is covering up the theft. ( slice it anyway one wants- there is no other conclusion possible).
They are pushing this lie because ANYTHING other that “Biden won” DEMANDS a legitimate investigation and charges- that’s the LAST thing the RINO’s or left want. ( for obvious reasons)
That’s why they want it “behind us” and NO OTHER REASON.
Its to cover their COMPLICIT ASSES.
All who push this mantra ARE PART OF THE STEAL ( either on the front end doing it or the back end covering for those who are on the front end)
So, the specifics of what Brooks said ( or didn’t say) mean nothing- when he said “move on”, that’s all he needed to say. The rest is academic. There’s not enough lipstick ever made to cover that pig from that point forward.
That’s why Trump pulled the endorsement and that’s why Brooks lost and being a weak spined fence walker is why he DESERVED to lose.
Well said. Others, the Trump haters, are just making crap up to cover up the truth.
I will be happy to campaign for DJT and will crawl over broken glass to cast a THIRD ballot for DJT should he earn the r nomination in 2024. That’s hardly the action of someone who hates DJT.
I and others disagree with that. Kurt Schlichter has a piece out today discussing some of this. This boils to the fact that DJT was robbed via shenanigans in 2020. No question. IMO, he and his surrogates come across as still crying about it v jumping in feet first to do something about fixing the election mechanics that were gamed to allow it.
Biden is President. DJT isn’t and there isn’t a mechanism to reverse that. It sucks but that’s the reality. The only way realistic way DJT becomes President again is to win in 2024.
IMO, DJT and his surrogates hurt their chances with voters by a singular focus on ‘we wuz robbed’. It comes across as whiny. It’s not as if this was the first election in which d/prog pushed beyond the limits of legality to get their guy the needed votes.
Here’s a few questions about 2020 that need answering. What proactive steps did DJT, as head of the r party take to counter this entirely predictable effort? Where was the r law fare apparatus to counter the d/prog? Where was a coordinated effort in r controlled State Legislatures to halt these activities? Where was the use of the bully pulpit to highlight, raise public awareness and a response in the yearlong lead up to the Nov election?
Trump has his own agenda and it is obviously not completely aligned with the agenda the rest of us are wanting.
I’m not in/from Alabama, but it appeared to me that Mr. Brooks was suggesting that we “move on”. That is the wrong thing to propose; we need to fix the process, prevent future steals, and educate the public that despite the chicanery, the 2020 election was indeed stolen. The correct mantra is not “move on” but instead “never again”.
Now the question is, does Ms. Britt get that, or is she a career pol who will take her marching orders from the Senate leadership?
Move on from the result of 2020 is a far cry from a declaration that we should ignore how that result was generated.
Same damn thing.
Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it
Acceptance is the first step to recovery.
In this case acceptance of the reality that Biden was in fact sworn in as POTUS and will continue to be for the entire term of office baring death, impeachment/conviction, the 25th amendment or resignation.
How Biden got to be POTUS is a separate question. The answer is lots of shenanigans and many outright illegal actions. Every single one of which should be investigated and prosecuted. Simultaneously every State should be reforming their elections laws and procedures to eliminate the ways the system was gamed in 2020.
A focus on fixing the mechanics so it doesn’t repeat seems more productive and useful than simply pointing out ‘we wuz robbed’. Everyone open to persuasion on that point already knows we got robbed.
“…Mr. Brooks was suggesting that we “move on”.”
Exactly, as I said above before I got this far down.
The first anti-American thing Britt does, she needs a primary opponent.
My forecast is:
Sure, Britt is gonna be a reliably red vote from a red state. But she won’t move the needle.
She won’t be as huge RINO disappointment on voting the way McCain or Murkowski is.
But she will do nothing to help drain the swamp unless forced to. FBI reform, slashing government over regulation and mission creep, etc – I don’t see her as a true warrior.
Shelby wasn’t, she isn’t.
Your forecast is decent, But Brooks wasn’t a swamp drainer or needle mover either. So, no loss, and possibly a win. We’ll have to wait and see.
The latest RINO rat: Dr. Oz:
After Winning Primary, RINO Globalist Dr. Mehmet Oz Drops Donald Trump From Campaign Branding:
A completely owned Mitch candidate. The last time that Mitch spent tons of money to defeat Mo Brooks, Alabama ended up with Doug Jones. If anyone really believes that America will be better with Biden, Mitch and McCarthy running things, I think they are deluded.
