The political context of Alabama
Brett is a candidate for the Republican Party, the historically strongest party in Alabama. For example, in 2020, the Republican candidate for the Senate in Alabama won 60% of the vote, compared to 40% of the Democratic candidate.
But Katie Brett isn’t the only candidate, as there are at least four other Democratic candidates.

However, it is supported by the Home Builders Association of Alabama, the FarmPAC of the Alabama Growers Federation, and the Alabama Retail Association’s Federal Policy Action Committee.
Elections will be held November 8 next year.
