Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is retiring after one term in 2018.
His far left nonsense has angered so many constituents that he understands he has zero chance of winning re-election.
In a recent interview, not only did Flake jab at President Trump (again), but he’s also not ruling out a run for Oval Office against 45 in 2020.
From Daily Wire:
FLAKE: That’s not in my plans, but I do wonder, I do worry that in the future we’ll be faced with a President Trump running for re-election on one side, drilling down hard on a diminishing base, and on the other side, you might have, you know, someone like Bernie Sanders [or] Elizabeth Warren on the far left [of] the Democratic Party. That leaves a huge swath of voters in the middle that [are] maybe looking for something else.
KARL: But you are open to running for president in 2020?
FLAKE: I don’t rule anything out, but it’s not in my plans.
KARL: It’s coming up, by the way.
FLAKE: It is.
KARL: Would you be more likely to run for the Republican nomination against the president or as an independent candidate?
FLAKE: Like I said, I haven’t thought that deeply about it. But I do believe if the president is running for re-election, if he continues on the path that he’s on, that that’s gonna leave a huge swath of voters looking for something else.
KARL: You’re saying that if he is the Republican nominee again, we’re likely to see an independent candidate, whether or not it’s you?
FLAKE: He’s inviting that. He’s probably inviting a Republican challenge as well. But certainly an independent challenge, yes.
KARL: What would it take for you to leave the Republican Party? You’ve already been as harshly critical of your Party’s president as you really can be.
FLAKE: I can say the fact that Roy Moore lost his election is a good sign that maybe the Republican Party, maybe we can turn back. But if we continue to go down that path, just to drill down on the base, then I think you’ll have a lot of people realize there’s no future for them in this party.
Flake is clearly delusional at this point.
Does he honestly think people will vote for him if he runs for president, unless as a Democrat?
