In a stunning announcement Tuesday, anti-Trump Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) will not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2018.AZ Central reports:
Condemning the nastiness of Republican politics in the era of President Donald Trump, Sen. Jeff Flake on Tuesday announced he will serve out the remainder of his term but will not seek re-election in 2018.
The bombshell, which Flake, R-Ariz., intended to detail Tuesday afternoon on the Senate floor, will further roil Republican hopes of keeping the party’s 52-seat Senate majority in the midterm elections of Trump’s first term, when the president’s party historically loses seats in Congress.
It also likely will upend the race
for Flake’s seat.
Flake, one of the Senate’s more prominent critics of President Donald Trump, has been struggling in the polls.
He told The Arizona Republic ahead of his announcement that he has become convinced “there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party.”
Flake has a rocky relationship with President Trump.
“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!,” tweeted Trump in August.
Ed. Gotta love Flake's statement: “there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party.”
The problem is there are too damned MANY people like you in the Republican Party, Jeff. Too many McCain-type sell-outs and liberal, GOP weasels. Voters are tired of it, Flake, placing your likelihood of re-election somewhere in the area of ZERO! And THAT, of course, is why you are dropping out.
One down, a bunch more to go.
