Katie Britt launched new radio and digital ads for her campaign for the U.S. Senate. The radio ad lasts 60 seconds and will be broadcast on a few dozen stations across Alabama. The digital ad lasts 30 seconds.
The ad promotes her recent endorsement by the Alabama Farmers Federation’s political arm FarmPAC. This endorsement is widely viewed as the top grassroots endorsement available in the state of Alabama. Approximately 100 of the federation’s leaders, representing all 67 counties, gathered in Montgomery last Tuesday to hear from candidates and make endorsement recommendations. The Coffee county native has also received endorsements from the Home Builders Association. Senior senator Richard Shelby, who is retiring at the end of his term, has backed Britt as his successor.
In the ad, Britt states, “The agriculture industry is the number one industry in the state. I will fight each and every day to make sure that they are in the best place possible. Next to our servicemen and women, there are no greater people in this country than our farmers. I’m inspired by what they do each and every day. That kind of dedication, that is what we need more of in this nation.”
Britt released a statement recognizing the importance of the FarmPac endorsement.
“I am proud and grateful to have earned the support of the Alabama Farmers Federation’s FarmPAC,” Britt stated. “Alabama’s farmers work tirelessly every day to feed and clothe America, and they are incredible examples of the type of work ethic and patriotism that have made the U.S. the country we know and love. I have travelled our state nonstop the past few months, and we’ve been blown away by the reception to our Alabama First message. It is clear that our state’s farmers not only know I will fight most effectively to defend our Christian conservative values in Washington, but that I will also work to grow opportunity and jobs in every local community in Alabama. Zip code should not define opportunity for Alabamians, and I will always be a champion for our farmers, cattlemen and everyone in the forestry sector as the next U.S. Senator for Alabama.”
