And while he prepares to step down after six terms, Shelby is keeping a little distance from Trump. Trump backed Brooks in April. The National Republican Senatorial Committee is expected to remain neutral on open primaries, and the GOP area code winner is heavily preferred in the Conservative state.
Shelby turned down a try against Brooks, just watching, “Could be an interesting race. We have to see how it plays out.” He also made it clear that he would not take an active role in the application of his former top aide: “She has to run her own campaign, I don’t do her campaign. She has her own people.”
Britt, who was Shelby’s chief of staff from 2016 to 2018, entered the Senate race this week. At the beginning of her career she also served him as a press advisor. Most recently she headed the Business Council of Alabama. She told The Associated Press that Shelby’s six year legacy will be remembered as “effective for the state of Alabama”.
“I have to stand on my own two feet,” she said. “When we get to know the people of Alabama, they will know that I am the best person to fight for them.”
