Mitch McConnell is slowly losing his power over the GOP.
Two more Republicans are now distancing themselves from Mitch McConnell.
Alabama Republicans Katie Britt and Rep. Mo Brooks blasted McConnell for suggesting there were no issues with the 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 Hawk Down” veteran Mike Durant, for the U.S. Senate seat that retiring Sen. Richard Shelby will leave open later this year.
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,” Britt’s spokesman Sean Ross told The Federalist. “Election security is one of the most pressing priorities Katie discusses on the campaign trail, and she has made it clear throughout the campaign that she believes a nationwide forensic audit of the 2020 election is needed to get to the bottom of what happened and ensure the integrity of American elections in the future.”
