MONTGOMERY, AL. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump repeated his support of Rep. Mo Brooks in the Alabama race for U.S. Senate, and took a jab at Brooks’ well-funded rival Katie Britt. Britt said Saturday that its a sign of her campaign’s momentum.

Trump reiterated his support for Brooks and took jabs at senators, including U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama and U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Britt was Shelby’s chief of staff but left to lead an influential business group.

Trump, in a statement, said Britt, is not what Alabama wants. Britt said Saturday that its a sign of her campaign’s momentum. Shelby is retiring at the end of his term.
