President Trump’s popularity among Arizona Republicans poses a significant hurdle for relentless Trump-bashing Jeff Flake
Arizona Republicans have been finding desperate money pleas from Sen. Jeff Flake in their in- boxes. The junior senator from Arizona is worried that the Democrats have him in their sights as they gear up for the 2018 election cycle. He needs money and he needs it quick to fight back against the liberal onslaught. This plea elevates begging to a fever pitch. Flake claims the Democrats are outspending Republicans 16 to 1 and he’s formed a Rapid Response Fund to close the gap. He’s slickly pre-checked the “make this a monthly donation” box, and is asking for as little as $10.
“We’ll be sure to circle back and let you know who’s contributed and who’s still outstanding,” Flake threatens.. “I need at least 1,000 Rapid Response Fund members, so we’ll be sharing this far and wide:” The pitch continues, “We’re expecting some more major buys from the Dems, so this is very time-sensitive.”
Who are the Democrat opponents nipping at Flake’s tender heels? Why is the incumbent’s campaign so destitute?
In an effort to seek answers we first visited the Federal Election Commission’s campaign finance data page for Jeff Flake for US Senate Inc. It was impressive to see that he’s “incorporated.” This filing period covers 01/01/2017 to 03/31/2017. It turns out Jeff Flake is quite a kidder. Flake is sitting on a stack of cash, closing in on nearly $2 million dollars — $1,790,817.00 — well over a year before the Aug. 28, 2018 primary election.
As you receive his mailers and watch his televised ads, don’t lose sight of who Jeff Flake is. He’s the one who made the rounds of senate offices with Democrat Merrick Garland in tow, attempting to gin up support for Barack Obama’s lame duck appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Fortunately, newly elected Republican President Donald Trump was not constrained by either Obama or his errand boy Flake. Trump appointed Judge Neil Gorsuch, a conservative, to fill the vacancy left by the unexpected death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.
As if hoisting Obama’s Democrat SCOTUS nominee wasn’t enough, in an outrageous display of arrogance Jeff Flake also made the rounds of network news venues, telling one and all that he would not vote for Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee. Here he is on NewsMax, declaring, “Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”
Flake was so persuasive, Hillary Clinton included him in this campaign commercial featuring a gang of traitorous Republicrat hooligans.
Flake is a relentless amnesty supporter, partnering with John McCain on the infamous Gang of 8 scheme with two other RINOs and four Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. He’s not above lying about his position on granting citizenship to millions of America’s invaders as we exposed in this 2011 post Oops — Jeff Flake’s crown slips as he sinks to mere McPolitician,
Jeff Flake has been at the public trough for the majority of his adult life, except for a stint as a lobbyist and registered foreign agent in the African nation of Namibia, where he worked for Rossing Uranium — one of the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel. Flake earned a substantial salary opening doors in D.C. and promoting the firm which had deep financial ties to Iran.
Is this a man deserving of your financial support? What most locals donate would be considered chump change to a man who has been collecting donations in multiples in what appears to be the insider’s magic donation number of $2,700 and often the donors are husbands and wives doubling up on the high dollar amount. Flake’s donor list is rife with lobbyists, utility honchos obviously wanting a quid pro quo. San Francisco Obama donor Gregory Wendt who was involved in McCain‘s purge of conservative precinct committeemen in Arizona is a Flake donor, along with McCain operatives and the reliable open border crowd, including those listed as immigration lawyers. Do you think their practices focus on legal, skilled immigrants from Europe and Asia or aiding uneducated illegals from Mexico and Central America?
This is Hillary Clinton’s campaign ad in which Jeff Flake is prominently featured:
Arizona Republicans deserve better. Dr. Kelli Ward, an osteopathic physician, is challenging this pathetic McCain doppelganger now completing a first six-year senate term. After exceeding his self imposed 3-term limits pledge, he spent 5 terms in the U.S. House before barely squeaking into the senate by 3 points. His word is obviously “fluid.” It’s time for a change. Kelli Ward isn’t sitting on nearly $2 million a year before the primary. She actually needs our help to be competitive.
