Club for Growth spot hits Britt for Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed ties, gas tax increase support

It was a matter of time, but Club for Growth has entered the fray for Alabama U.S. Senate up for grabs in 2022.

Club for Growth Action, the federal super PAC associated with the Washington, D.C.- based Club for Growth, who has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), has fired its first salvo at former Business Council of Alabama head Katie Britt.

A Club for Growth spokesman told Yellowhammer News on Monday that it is going up with a new ad that will run after the Iron Bowl in the Montgomery media market.

The spot hits Britt for her association with Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed and for backing the 2019 Rebuild Alabama Act, which included a fuel tax increase.

Transcript as follows:

“Wouldn’t it be nice if politics had clear lines like football? Look at Katie Britt. Whose side is she on? Britt worked for Democrat mayor Steve Reed’s transition team when he took over in Montgomery that pushed a ton of liberal policies, including massive tax increases. And Britt backed a $300 million, 10-cent-a-gallon gas tax hike. Katie Britt: If you’re a Trump conservative, she’s not on your team.”
