Flake is in some real trouble. He is either not going to run for re-election or he is trying to lure several Trump supporting opponents into the primary race in order to split the Trump, anti-Flake vote and win with < 40%.
The Trump forces need to coalesce around 1 candidate.
The McCain camp had a couple fake Republicans run in the primary in order to split the anti-McCain vote & take votes away from Kelli Ward last year. As soon as the ballots were printed the one of the fakes dropped out of the race but his name still appeared on the ballot and he siphoned off Ward votes. McCain did win but with 51% of the vote, his smallest margin of victory ever.
We need to do Trump primaries in all these states where we are going to primary the RINO, like Arizona and Nevada. In the Trump primary, the lead members of Trump’s campaign team need to call for any Republicans who want to run in the primary (except the RINO) to meet for a conference with a few hundred of the leading Trump volunteers and contributors in the state. Each one should give a speech and pitch the reasons why they should be the nominee. Each should commit to accept the decision of the Trump Party.
After some speeches by supporters of the various candidates, it is put to a vote, supervised by someone trustworthy. Then, that is the candidate that Trump and all his supporters get behind in the primary.
The point is, we cannot allow ourselves to be split. We must remove the nevertrumpers and GOPe people, and send a signal to those Senators who are not up this time. Sasse, for example—he’s next no matter what.
