AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Alabama’s Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby is a bitter high-dollar fight between three candidates.

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks who won — and then lost — former President Donald Trump’s backing in the race on Tuesday faces Katie Boyd Britt, the former leader of Business Council of Alabama and Shelby’s former chief of staff; and Mike Durant, the owner of an aerospace company but who is better known as the helicopter pilot whose capture during a U.S. military mission in Somalia was chronicled in the “Black Hawk Down” book and subsequent movie.
