Following Katie Britt’s victory over Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., in Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff election, Alabama voters will decide who will be their next U.S. senator in November.

Britt told Fox News Digital in her first interview after her election victory that it was a “surreal moment” and that it hasn’t “quite sunk in” that she will represent the Republican Party in the general election in the Yellowhammer State on November 8.

“I’m overjoyed,” she said, adding that Alabamians “need fresh blood.”

When asked if former President Trump’s endorsement of her candidacy influenced her chances of winning, Britt replied, “absolutely!”

“We were so proud to earn that endorsement, and we also know that people know – and obviously the president knows – that we’re the best to fight for the America first agenda,” she said. “That’s what I’m hearing throughout the state. People long for those policies.”

Britt stated that she and her team would “continue our grassroots campaign, we’re going to continue to crisscross the state, meeting with voters and spreading our message” ahead of the general election.

Britt believes it is important to “earn” Alabamians’ votes and hopes to be elected because she is the “best person for the job.”

The newly elected Republican nominee for the state also emphasized the significance of her victory as an example for other conservative women who want to run for office.

“It’s thrilling to see so many young conservatives and young women stand up and say, ‘It’s time,'” Britt said. “What it boils down to is that under Joe Biden’s leadership, everything in this country is going in the wrong direction. As mothers, we understand that if we don’t stand up and fight, there will be nothing left for our children to fight for.”

Britt stated that the Republican Party is “no longer the party of big business,” but rather the party of “working Americans.”

Britt, who was the chief of staff to retiring Senator Richard Shelby but has never held public office, will face Democratic nominee and pastor Will Boyd, who easily won his primary last month with more than 60% of the vote.

She is expected to win in November and become the first woman to represent Alabama in the United States Senate.

The largely Republican state has only elected one Democratic senator in the last 30 years, when Doug Jones was elected in a special election in 2017 over Republican and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual misconduct at the time.

Boyd spoke with Fox News Digital on Tuesday and outlined his agenda for the general election in November, saying he has strong support from his party and independent voters in Alabama and has what it takes to win the seat.

“Many Alabamians came to me and said I’m the only hope at this time,” said Boyd, who was born in South Carolina. “I have a lot of Republicans, independents, and Democrats who are really excited about me winning this Senate seat.”

“We have a middle class that needs to grow and advance,” Boyd explained. “I wanna grow the middle class from the middle out, from the ground up. I want to end poverty as much as possible.”

Boyd stated that Alabama must “take the right approach” to ensure success in the state, and that access to healthcare must be expanded and improved.

“I want equal justice for all,” he said. “We continue to see instances in which African Americans’ voices are not heard in the court systems… And, of course, our environment is critical… Climate change is undeniably real.”

Boyd and his supporters “really believe this is an election we’re going to win and do well in November,” but many in the state believe his chances of winning in deep-red Alabama are a “unbelievable climb.”
