Britt’s campaign is powered in part by financial support from Sen. Shelby and WinRed, a national GOP fundraising PAC, as well as powerful individuals and groups in Alabama politics. As of the most recent federal filings from June 1, Britt’s campaign had just over $1.2 million to spend. Brooks had over $733,000.
But Britt did not begin the race as its frontrunner. Brooks, who campaigned as a pro-Trump candidate and who began with President Trump’s endorsement, lost that endorsement in March and saw a drop in the polls.
The GOP almost certain to win the seat in the November general election barring a catastrophic shift of events. This would make Britt the first woman to represent Alabama in the Senate.
