The news just keeps getting worse for Jeff ‘The Flake’ as a new poll shows him trailing Kelli Ward by 14 points. Flake, who voted for Evan McMullin in the 2016 election, only accomplishment as a senator was to push for amnesty as a member of the ‘gang of eight’.
Flake has spent the last couple of months trying to sell his new book by going on liberal networks to bash the president.
Flake siding with Hillary Clinton, Obama, and the democrats on gun control, open borders, on the supreme court, and on unbridled free trade has shown Arizona republicans that The Flake doesn’t have their back.

“While Election Day may still be more than a year away, Senator Jeff Flake’s campaign has a lot of work to do to persuade Republican primary voters that his form of principled Republican conservatism can trump the nativist populism that is fueling Republican voters’ antipathy towards Washington insiders. These same Republicans still give the President a 74% approval rating in Arizona,” said Chuck Coughlin, President & CEO of HighGround Public Affairs, which conducted the poll.
