#NeverTump RINO Jeff Flake May Not Be Quite Done Yet– First he wants to ensure a Democrat Wins in Arizona
NeverTrumpers NEVER go away quietly.
RINO #NeverTrump Senator Jeff Flake announced last Tuesday he will not seek reelection in Arizona.
Then Tuesday he took to the Senate floor to audition for a future gig on MSNBC.
The outspoken #NeverTrumper trashed the Republican president and Republican voters in a 17 minute speech.
Of course, liberals loved it.
Now Flake may run as an independent candidate in Arizona.
So he can screw Republicans.
Via US News and World Report:
Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona has considered running for his seat as an independent and given his blessing to an outside organization to conduct polling to explore the possibility, a source familiar with his thinking tells U.S. News.
Flake announced last Tuesday he would not seek re-election to a second Senate term next year in light of his dire chances of winning a Republican primary and his frustration with the tenure of President Donald Trump. Polling showed him trailing his insurgent challenger, Kelli Ward, by double digits.
But The Centrist Project, a group created to recruit independent candidates, approached Flake about running outside the dominant two-party system during a meeting on Friday. The senator signaled he was open to the possibility and interested in what polling would show, according to the source.
A spokesperson for Flake did not respond to an inquiry. After initial publication of this story, the senator tweeted that an independent run is “not gonna happen.”
