Katie Britt (R), the former Alabama Business Council President and CEO, announced her US Senate candidacy yesterday. She is also the former chief of staff to retiring US Senator Richard Shelby (R). Ms. Britt will be a formidable candidate and opposes Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and ex-US Ambassador Lynda Blanchard in the GOP primary. Democrats do not yet have an announced candidate. Early reports suggest that Sen. Shelby will endorse Ms. Britt.
