AL: Britt beats Brooks in Senate primary that divided MAGA world

Source: Politico

“Republican voters in Alabama resolved a high-profile feud in MAGA world on Tuesday, casting votes in the GOP Senate primary runoff between one of former President Donald Trump’s most loyal acolytes, and the candidate who ultimately earned his final endorsement. Katie Britt won the runoff after Trump turned on Rep. Mo Brooks, a top election-denying ally, to instead support the establishment-backed candidate. Although the votes were still being tallied, Britt appeared on course to best Brooks by a 2-to-1 margin. … The race has left some of Trump’s staunchest loyalists bewildered by his decision to support Britt, whom he described less than a year ago as the ‘assistant’ of ‘the RINO Senator from Alabama,’ saying Britt was ‘not what our Country needs.'” (06/21/22)
