Katie Boyd Britt officially announces run for Senate in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Republican Katie Boyd Britt has entered the race for Alabama’s open U.S. Senate seat.

In a Tuesday announcement video, Britt stressed her work for U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby and her leadership of a state business group, and promised to put Alabama first.

Britt is a former chief of staff for Shelby with deep ties to the state’s business community. She is expected to be a formidable entry into what’s shaping up to be a GOP primary battle.

Two Republicans are already in the race: Congressman Mo Brooks and Lynda Blanchard. Brooks is armed with an endorsement from former President Donald Trump.

Blanchard was Trump’s ambassador to Slovenia.
