Club for Growth has finally joined the fight for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat. The 2022 election, still months away, is looking to be a long and hard-fought battle, with major players vying to take the seat now held by long-time senator Richard Shelby.

Club for Growth Action, the federal super PAC, has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks. Now the group is taking aim at Katie Britt.

A Club for Growth spokesman told Yellowhammer News that it has a new ad that will run after the Iron Bowl in the Montgomery media market.

The 30-second ad targets Britt for her association with Democrat Mayor Steven Reed and for her supporting the 2019 Rebuild Alabama Act, which included a fuel tax increase.

The ad states, “Wouldn’t it be nice if politics had clear lines like football? Look at Katie Britt. Whose side is she on? Britt worked for Democrat mayor Steve Reed’s transition team when he took over in Montgomery that pushed a ton of liberal policies, including massive tax increases. And Britt backed a $300 million, 10-cent-a-gallon gas tax hike. Katie Britt: If you’re a Trump conservative, she’s not on your team.”
