Katherine Webb, the former Miss Alabama and current girlfriend of University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, is now making waves in politics.

The model endorsed former Republican National Committee aide Wells Griffith in Alabama’s 1st Congressional special election. The GOP primary for that race is next Tuesday.

Griffith is running against a number of Republicans, including former Alabama gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne and conservative journalist Quin Hillyer.
