MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Mike Durant, the “Black Hawk Down” pilot who finished third in Alabama’s Republican Senate primary, said he will not make an endorsement in the upcoming runoff.

Durant said he will not endorse either of the candidates advancing to the June 21 runoff, Katie Britt, and U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks.

He said Brooks has ”been in the public office for 40 years” and accused Britt of being unqualified and of distorting his positions.

The runoff will decide the GOP nomination for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby.
