GOP Sen. Jeff Flake isnt ruling out a primary challenge to President Trump in 2020.
I wont go there. Thats a long time away, the Arizona senator told CNN, when asked if he or another Republican should oppose Trump in the next election. Its early. Time will take care of itself.
Flake announced that he would not be seeking re-election on Tuesday in an emotional speech that sharply criticized Trump and his leadership.
After the speech, he told CNN that Republicans like himself, who are willing to criticize the president, have a narrow path to election.
I would have to run a campaign that I couldnt be proud of, he said. And I chose not do that.
Flake, who said he believes the president is setting a bad example for children, called out Trump for tweeting at foreign leaders and referring to Democrats as losers or clowns.
