MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WDHN) — One of the most talked about races in the Alabama primary will be heading to a runoff election in June.

Tuesday, Alabama voters showed that Katie Britt was the favorite in the Republican race to the U.S. Senate.

Britt garnered 45 percent of the statewide vote.

“People know that I am the best to fight for our Christian, conservative values. They know that I am the best leader to move us forward with the America first agenda. Folks, that we’ve been talking about everyday from the Tennessee Valley down to the Gulf Coast. That’s the message we are going to continue to deliver,” Britt said in a speech following the election results.

Now the stage turns to June 21st, where Britt and Huntsville congressman Mo Brooks will face off again in a runoff. Brooks received 29 percent of the vote in the primary.

Not addressing Brooks by name, Britt was critical of so-called “Career Politicians.”

“And that folks is the definition of a career politician, and we have way too many of them in Washington, D.C. It’s always about them, it’s not about Alabama, it’s not what’s best for America, it’s what elevates them.”

The Enterprise native has served in Washington, D.C. herself as Richard Shelby’s chief of staff from 2016 to 2018. She worked in the mid-2000’s as Shelby’s press secretary as well.

The runoff election will take place June 21st, with the winner going up against Will Boyd in the general election this fall.
