A couple of guys named Tad and Josh have been sending out Jeff Flake breaking news emails. The first one heralded a chance to win tickets to a June 2 luncheon where failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney would appear in Tucson on behalf of fake Republican Jeff Flake. The Flake campaign was even holding a contest in which a lucky winner could score a free lunch.
Then came the follow-up .announcement which reached dizzying political heights Republicrats only dream about. Romney was also coming to Phoenix to stump for Flake. A reception has been scheduled later the same day.
The invitation tells recipients that the dual appearances are due to “popular demand,” leading us to wonder who these clamoring Mitt supporters are. Two tickets to the Phoenix reception can be had for a mere $5 donation — a bargain at half the price.
Who can forget when Mitt headlined a Mesa event for John McCain and only a handful of people showed up? Booking the LDS stronghold of Mesa is considered a sure thing for attendance for Mitt, but as this photo in the Arizona Daily Independent shows, that was not the case. Romney has never done well promoting lackluster Arizona U.S. Senate candidates. Octogenarian McCain tried to return the endorsement favor when Romney was running for president, and confused him with Barack Obama. (Embarrassing video in link).
We’re not including the ordering information since today is the deadline. Besides it’s doubtful the conservatives who routinely read SRAZ would likely be interested.
At 70, Romney still hungers for elective office. According to this report in Utah Policy, the Republicrat is now giving serious thought to running for the U.S. Senate from Utah, if Orrin Hatch retires. No wonder he’s stumping for Jeff the Fake Republican who bragged that he was not voting for the GOP presidential nominee. With Flake and McCain, Romney’s election would secure three solid votes with the Democrats.
