What To Do About Flake: Sunday’s Comic

In Opening Campaign Salvo, Flake Book Says GOP Has ‘Lost Its Way’

WASHINGTON – Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is calling for a return to “traditional conservatism” in a book that says the Republican Party has lost its way, the opening salvo in what could be a tough re-election campaign.

The first-term Senate Republican made the comments Sunday during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” where he talked about his new book “Conscience of a Conservative.”

The title alludes to the 1960 book of the same name by former Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Arizona, a conservative icon and one of Flake’s political role models. Flake said he and Goldwater both wrote their books in response to a feeling that their party had “lost its way……

A recent poll by Morning Consult pegged Flake as the third-least-popular senator, with approval ratings of 37 percent compared to disapproval ratings of 45 percent. His unfavorable ranking trailed only Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, both of whom had higher approval numbers than Flake…..

Republican Kelli Ward, who ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat Sen. John McCain from the right last year, almost immediately announced a primary challenge to Flake. She vows to support Trump and her campaign accuses Flake of “supporting the Clinton crime family by being a vocal member of Never Trump” in the last election and announcing that he would vote for a write-in candidate.

Other possible GOP challengers that have been mentioned include former state party chairman Robert Graham and state Treasurer Jeff DeWit, who served as chief operating officer for Trump’s national campaign…..”

  1. What do you do with little Jeffie? Vote his ass out. Its that simple. He doesn’t win, then he goes home? He is an idiot and will be lost without McCain as his puppet master.

    The soon to be one-term Senate Republican is quickly becoming yesterday’s news.
    His book with its plagiarized titled must be a total hoot from a total flake, if the Republican party has lost its way, Jeff Flake is certainly never going to be the compass man.
    Six solid years of disappointment, jam packed with betrayal, misdeeds and lies is a lot to recover from during the abbreviated upcoming election cycle.

    Flake is a one and done senator who should start packing. No one on the left or right like him. That’s what happens when you throw your party under the bus.

  4. replaced with whom? or what? What’s the alternative? I’d love to have him go home, where ever that rock is he lives under.

      Jeff DeWit would be a great replacement for Senator Corn Flake. He is HONEST, Smart and loves Arizona. He is fearless, when Governor Dougie put together Prop 123 Jeff DeWit cared enough about protecting the source of education funding to make it a personal crusade to defeat an effort to raid the State Land Trust.

        I will second that motion. Any sense who is considering to challenge Corn Flake in a primary?

    • Unfortunately the only announced candidate challenging Sen ator Flake is Kelli Ward who has proven she incapable of running a credible campaign. When she challenged McCain last time, her narrative consisted of nothing more than “he is bad, I am god and I care about the people, that`s why me name is spelled with an i.” No one who is serious about electing a true conservative as an AZ Senator should support Ward or Flake in the primary or the general election.

  5. He might be pretty but he’s pretty dumb!
