This race has seen many changes in the past week. The Democrat candidate, ex-U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona. got a big break when his primary opponent dropped out. Meanwhile, Republica Congerssman Jeff Flake has is having a surprisingly hard primary. Businessman Wil Cardon has been attacking Flake as a political insider. Flake is a strong conservative on all issues except for border security, while Cardon is a strong conservative on the whole range of issues.
This is why a Republican President should never appoint a non-Republican to anything unless it’s part of a plan to get their House or Senate seat (Tony Hall-Ohio).
I do not support Flake. For an individual lacking bonafides on the borders to be seriously running for office in AZ as a Republican is ludicrous.
Two Mormon RINOs. Yawn. Cardon is pretending (a la McLame) that he wants secure borders. He is a fraud. Flake is worse. Awful “choice” for AZ GOP.
Here is another U.S. Senate primary which is getting more attention.
” Flake is a strong conservative on all issues except for border security,”
Then, he is a TRAITOR!!
This is another Republican primary that’s showing up on the charts. The vote is in September.
