MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A new poll commissioned by FarmPAC, the political arm of the Alabama Farmers Federation, shows a tight race among three candidates running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.
In a survey conducted from Feb. 2-6, Republican voters were asked who they would vote for in the field of Congressman Mo Brooks, Katie Britt and Mike Durant. According to the poll, 33.7% of voters chose Brooks, 28.5% chose Britt, 24.4% chose Durant and 13% were undecided.
The poll surveyed 600 likely Republican voters and carries a margin of error of 4%. It was conducted by Cherry Communications, a Florida based survey research firm.
Alabama Farmers Federation is supporting Britt in the race.
If the Republican Primary Election for U.S. Senate were held today, which candidate would you vote for: Katie Britt, Mo Brooks or Mike Durant?
Another recent poll commissioned by Club for Growth, which is supporting Brooks, showed Brooks leading with 35% to Durant’s 30% and Britt’s 25%.
Until recently, Durant had been the only candidate with significant advertising on television, radio and digital. Britt released a new television ad last week. The Britt and Durant ads are below. Brooks has not released advertising since last year’s radio flight that boasted the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.
All three candidates have had support from super PACs and other outside groups.
