Alabama Senate candidate Katie Britt has defeated Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) in the state’s GOP primary run-off election.
As of press time, Britt has secured 66.54% of the vote and Brooks has earned 33.46%, according to Decision Desk HQ, with enough votes counted to project a winner.
Britt secured former President Donald Trump’s endorsement after coming in first place with a plurality of votes in the GOP primary election in May. Brooks was endorsed by Trump prior to that election. He then lost Trump’s support after saying that it was time to move on from the 2020 election. He placed second during Alabama’s GOP primary election. Since neither candidate had 50% or more of the vote, the run-off election was held on Tuesday, June 21.
