Alabama's first candidate for the 2022 Senate race has stepped forward.

Lynda Blanchard, a former President Trump ambassador to Slovenia, is the first to announce a run for Richard Shelby's Senate seat. Shelby announced earlier this month that he would not seek a seventh term.

In her announcement video, Blanchard emphasized that she is a defender of Trump's legacy.
