Republican Katie Britt raised more than $2 million for her Senate campaign in Alabama last month, shattering a statewide quarterly record for a GOP candidate in a federal race.

Britt, who launched her campaign in early June, pulled in a staggering $2.24 million in her first 23 days on the trail. More than 90 percent of those donations came from Alabamians.

“I am proud that such a large number of our contributions came from right here in Alabama,” she said in a Tuesday statement. “It is clear that the people of our great state know that we don’t just need a senator from Alabama, we need a Senator FOR Alabama.” 

Britt, a former aide to retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), is facing off against two other prominent Republicans in the primary to replace her old boss, former Ambassador to Slovenia Lynda Blanchard and Rep. Mo Brooks, who has already received the endorsement of former President Trump.

Neither Blanchard nor Brooks have disclosed their second-quarter fundraising totals yet. Quarterly financial reports must be filed with the Federal Election Commission by July 15.
