“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.
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.DONATE
