Sen. Jeff Flake Drops Out

Sen. Jeff Flake Drops Out”

That announcement came on October 17 when Ward kicked off her campaign in Scottsdale, Ariz., with former presidential strategist Steve Bannon, now the executive chairman of Breitbart, and Laura Ingraham, the founder and editor-in-chief of LifeZette.

The day Bannon left the White House, he declared war. In the battle for Sen. He went on to inform the Arizonans that Jeff Flake "probably in his gut ... doesn't like you", and that the GOP establishment wanted them to "shut up".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called Flake's decision to leave the Senate "good news" and blasted his speech as inappropriate.

A senator from Donald Trump's Republican Party unleashed a powerful attack on the U.S. leader Tuesday as he announced he would not seek re-election for fear of being "complicit" with a "reckless" presidency.

Amid the GOP's high-stakes push for tax reform, President Trump met Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill Tuesday to plan a tax strategy, but feuds within his own party dominated the day.

"We must never regard as "normal" the regular and casual undermining of our democratic norms and ideals". "We must stop pretending that the degradation of our politics and the conduct of some in our executive branch are normal..."

"Reckless, outrageous, and undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as 'telling it like it is, ' when it is actually just reckless, outrageous, and undignified".

In his speech, Flake set up numerous straw men, only to knock them down, saying it's wrong to blindly support the president and wrong to support party over principle.

When the next generation asks us, 'Why didn't you do something?

Senators were stunned Tuesday when their colleague Sen. He was facing a stiff challenge for the Republican nomination, and Democrats were preparing a tough general election fight as well. "Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the US has done", Mr. Trump said on Twitter. "We expect different behavior from our commander-in-chief and the President of the United States, ' then it will change", Flake said.

Flake's new strategy seems to be that he just isn't going to do that anymore.

Will Allison, Flake's campaign spokesman, confirms to CNN that he is not running. I was troubled initially, years ago, by his birtherism. "I think that they were not likely to be re-elected and I think that that shows that the support is more behind this president than it is those two individuals", she said. "That was very unbecoming of anybody to put that forward".

The exchange of tweets between Mr. Trump and Mr. Corker followed by Mr. Flake's announcement gave Washington a jolt but was far from a stampede.

Flake now joins Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, with whom Mr. Trump traded jabs over Twitter Tuesday morning.

She also defended the president's fight with Corker.

Flake, who will serve until the end of his term in January 2019, is now free to spend the rest of his term doing the same without worrying about what will happen to his approval rating.
