    The White House has been meeting with prospective opponents of Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in an apparent effort to put pressure on the senator, who has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump. Flake refused to endorse Trump during the presidential campaign and said he could not attend the GOP convention because he had to "mow his lawn." Now, the Trump administration has had meetings with at least three prospective candidates to run against Flake in the Republican primary, Politico reports. Flake is up for reelection in 2018 and is considered quite vulnerable. Politico reports that Trump has...
  • CAN KELLY WARD BEAT FLAKE?

    If she takes him out she will be the de-facto leader of the new GOP Class, a no more messin' around class(Hellers, Corkers and such). Could she nationalize the elections with Trump taking a high profile role? It's an opportunity to put the RINOS in the background where they belong. It starts with Flake-a fish smaller than McCain.

    I already alluded to this subject yesterday(60 seats). Flake has to go. All in for the M.D. who couldn't take out McLame? Corker would be tougher. Hatch should take himself out-old. Heller(Nev.) has incumbency. I say take out Flake find a real conservative in Utah and the rest takes care of itself including the fire lit under asses. A national effort. Talk to me.
  • Senate GOP Introduces Bill To Break Up The ‘LIBERAL’ Ninth Circuit Court

    Republicans are now pushing to break up the liberal ninth circuit court which is the most reversed court in the country. Republican Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain have introduced legislation to “carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit,” according to Fox News. The argument that they make is that the court is too big, too liberal and too slow in resolving cases.

    Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake told reporters that Senate Republicans should take up the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to succeed the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Though Flake consistently supports putting Garland’s nomination up for a vote, Thursday he implied Republican nominee Donald Trump was likely to lose the November election. Therefore, the Senate should confirm Garland before Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has the opportunity to nominate a younger, more liberal

    BULLHEAD CITY — Arizona U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake says he still has issues with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and is unlikely to vote for him. Flake, in Bullhead City on Wednesday, gave an exclusive interview to the Mohave Valley Daily News. “I’m not part of the ‘never Trump’ movement. I want to be able to vote for him, but I can’t see myself doing that, unless he changes the positions he’s taken and the language he’s used,” Flake said. “I don’t think he can win the presidency and if he doesn’t change the way he’s campaigned, I don’t think...

    Republicans have wrestled for years with the push and pull of seeking to win over new groups of voters while tending to their overwhelmingly white and conservative base. Now, Mr. Trump’s candidacy may force them into making a fateful choice: whether to fully embrace the Trump model and become, effectively, a party of white identity politics, or to pursue a broader political coalition by repudiating Mr. Trump’s ideas — and many of the voters he has gathered behind his campaign. With his diatribes against Islam, immigration from Mexico and economic competition from Asia, Mr. Trump has amassed dominant support from...

    WASHINGTON D.C. - Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) clashed with presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump in a private meeting on Thursday, according to the Washington Post. A representative for Flake confirmed the details of their exchange during Trump's meeting with Senate Republicans. When Flake introduced himself, Trump said Flake had "been very critical" of him. Sources told the Post that Flake responded by calling himself "the other senator from Arizona -- the one who didn't get captured."

    Donald Trump’s private meeting Thursday with Senate Republicans — designed to foster greater party unity ahead of the national convention in Cleveland — grew combative as the presumptive presidential nominee admonished three senators who have been critical of his candidacy and predicted they would lose their reelection bids, according to two Republican officials with direct knowledge of the exchanges. Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona....

    In a remarkable interview with Business Insider, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake argued that Congress should pass President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement despite the American people’s overwhelming objection to it. BI writes: Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake told Business Insider during a Wednesday interview that Congress is going to have to “suck up” and ratify the agreement because it simply must be done, even in the face of hostile opposition to trade along the campaign trail… ‘I do still think there are enough people that realize we’ve got to do it,’ the Arizona Republican said. ‘Some of those things you just...

    Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant revival tour might cause headaches for down-ballot Republicans who are already trying to put space between themselves and the divisive party front-runner. (SNIP) Three Senate Republicans from Latino-heavy states, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Dean Heller of Nevada and Jeff Flake of Arizona, are all well-practiced in the dance of softening tough-talk on immigration enforcement to avoid alienating voters.

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) 45% explained his decision to meet with President Barack Obama’s nomination to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, Judge Merrick Garland. Flake acknowledged GOP senators were doing the proper thing to put off any action on Obama’s pick, but added that in the event Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton should be elected president, Garland should be given consideration. “I think that Republicans are doing the right thing,” Flake said. “We’re fully justified in saying, ‘Let’s wait until after the election to actually nominate someday or approve the president’s nomination.’...

    A small group of Senate Republicans is breaking with its party's Supreme Court strategy, with lawmakers saying they're willing to meet with President Obama's pick to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia. Seven Republicans so far have said they are open to considering or meeting with Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia who was nominated for the Supreme Court earlier Wednesday by President Obama. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said she agreed to meet with Garland after the White House reached out, but said such a meeting will take place after the Senate...

    Washington - Even though the Democratic majority vowed to return Congress to a path of fiscal responsibility, the 2008 appropriations bills were stuffed with wasteful pork projects. While Representatives John Campbell, Jeff Flake, Jeb Hensarling, Scott Garrett, and David Obey (1 amendment) offered 50 amendments to strip outrageous pork projects from the appropriations bills, only one amendment, offered by Rep. Jeff Flake, passed. The Club for Growth has compiled a RePORK Card of all members' votes on all 50 anti-pork amendments (see below). "Taxpayers have a right to know which congressmen stand up for them and which stand up for...

    Government agencies spent $8 million to put 12 primates on treadmills in Texas and paid $30,000 in fines for a host of federal violations, including performing a necropsy on a baboon that was still alive. The Southwest National Primate Research Center, in San Antonio, received grants from the National Institutes of Health to run the study. Over the past decade, the facility collected nearly $70 million from various federal agencies. During the same period, the center was slapped with more than $30,000 in penalties for abuse. The U.S. Department of Agriculture identified 14 violations of the Animal Welfare Act at...

    Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake told worshipers at a north Scottsdale mosque Friday that the rhetoric on display in the GOP presidential campaign this week does not fit American ideals. "This was a difficult week in Washington," the Mesa Republican told more than 200 worshipers at the Islamic Center of the North East Valley. "We are a better country than has been on display this week." "My hope and prayer today is that isolated voices calling for division are overwhelmed by the chorus of voices in this room today calling for acceptance, tolerance and inclusion."

    Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake shocked MSNBC's Chuck Todd Thursday evening with his candid response that Republican lawmakers won't publicly admit they oppose Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee because they fear the front-runner would launch a third-party run. "Those who don't want a Republican in the White House want Republicans to say this because the most likely scenario if there's not a Republican in the White House will be because Donald Trump runs as a third-party candidate and if Republicans say now we will not support the ultimate nominee, that gives Donald Trump license to run as a third-party...
