Alabama Senate Candidates Distance Themselves From Mitch McConnell On 2020 Election

Republicans Katie Britt and Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama are distancing themselves from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell after McConnell suggested there were no problems with the 2020 election. Britt and Brooks are competing, along with “Black Hawn Down” veteran Mike Durant, for the U.S. Senate seat that retiring Sen. Richard Shelby will leave open later this year.

After South Dakota Republican Sen. Mike Rounds on Sunday dismissed election complaints and claimed the 2020 election “was fair, as fair as we have seen,” McConnell backed Rounds’ comments on Tuesday, telling CNN, “I think Sen. Rounds told the truth about what happened in the 2020 election. … And I agree with him.” Republican Sen. Mitt Romney piped in on Monday to comment that “Mike Rounds speaks truth knowing that our republic depends on it.”

But candidates in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama struck a different tone, which may be more in touch with their voters on election integrity concerns than the GOP Old Guard in Washington is.

“President Trump is right about the 2020 election. Mitch McConnell is wrong,” Brooks told The Federalist when asked if he agreed with McConnell’s assessment of the 2020 presidential election.

“That’s why I stood with Donald Trump when it mattered most, between November 3rd and January 6th, while McConnell and the Washington establishment were abandoning him — and I’m still standing with him,” Brooks continued. “McConnell’s refusal to say what grassroots conservatives across America know and speak the truth about 2020, coupled with his being the most unpopular elected official in Washington, combine to persuade me that Republicans must find a better Senate GOP leader.”

Britt also challenged establishment Republicans’ assumption that the 2020 election was problem-free. “Without a doubt, Katie believes election fraud occurred,”

I think the Ruling Oligarchy's "nothing to see here, everything was on the up and up" narrative is slowly losing ground.

Boozman, Crapo, Lankford, Lee, Moran, Murkowski, Rubio, Scott, Thune and Young should all have primary challengers this cycle.

They are all Mitch’s bitches.

I agree. I know her husband’s family very well. Will NOT vote for a Shelby protege/ Establishment Republic. Plus, I am afraid Durant is a GOPe plant.

Could be. Durant and Brooks might split the more conservative vote. We’ll see.

The first one that says Mitch has got to go as leader, and I will vote him out! Will win hands down! Standing by McConnell is a loosing strategy.

Exactly! Her protege, Richard Shelby, is best buddies with McConnell. Mo Brooks has been a fighter, which is what we need.
