Jeff Flake Won't Seek Re-Election In 2018

Jeff Flake Won't Seek Re-Election In 2018”

Jeff Flake announced Tuesday he would not seek re-election in 2018.

The open seat provides another opportunity for the Democrats to regain a majority in the Senate, but could also end up getting filled by a more right-wing and Trump-oriented member of the Republican party.

Flake, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, announced on October 24, he won't seek re-election.

He's been struggling in the polls following his tangles with Trump.

An aide to Flake confirmed the news to NBC News, before Flake took to the floor of the Senate to issue a warning that "we must never adjust to the present coarseness of our national dialogue".

"I rise today to say enough", Flake said.

Flake did not name President Donald Trump but said "such talk emanates from the top of our government".

"It would require me to believe in positions I don't hold on such issues as trade and immigration and it would require me to condone behavior that I can not condone".

Ward, the former state senator from Lake Havasu City, was defeated by Sen.

He had a tea party primary challenger in Kelli Ward, whom Trump has praised.

"I have seen Jeff Flake stand up for what he believes in knowing full well that there would be a political price to pay", McCain said.
