    Former Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday he has been in touch with the Biden administration when asked about recent reporting that the administration is considering him for an ambassadorship, but said there have been "no specific talks." "All I've said is I would have an interest in making sure that President (Joe) Biden's foreign policy is bipartisan," Flake, a CNN political commentator, told CNN's Pamela Brown on "Newsroom." "You know, we used to say that partisanship stops at the water's edge. That needs to happen, and I think it can happen. But there's been no specific talks," said...

    Sunday in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment acquittal, former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the GOP’s identity with Trump no longer in office. Flake, now a CNN analyst, warned the GOP would remain in a “permanent minority” if it continues to follow Trump. He doubled down on his belief that there is “no future with Trumpism.”

    PHOENIX — Arizona Republicans voted Saturday to censure Cindy McCain and two prominent GOP officials who have found themselves crosswise with former President Donald Trump.The censures of Sen. John McCain’s widow, former Sen. Jeff Flake and Gov. Doug Ducey are merely symbolic. But they show the party’s foot soldiers are focused on enforcing loyalty to Trump, even in the wake of an election that saw Arizona inch away from its staunchly Republican roots.Party activists also reelected controversial Chairwoman Kelli Ward, who has been one of Trump’s most unflinching supporters...

    The Arizona Republican Party will vote on resolutions to censure Cindy McCain, former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, when it meets on January 23. McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), endorsed President-elect Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. On Tuesday, Arizona Central reported the text of the draft resolution to censure and “dissolve any connections” between the Republican Party and McCain:

    Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) has filmed an ad for former Vice President Joe Biden, using the spot to urge Republicans to put "country over party" and support the Democratic presidential nominee. “I’ve been a conservative Republican my entire life,” Flake says at the start of the ad released Wednesday, noting the first time he cast a presidential ballot was for Ronald Reagan in 1984. “I’ve never before voted for a Democrat for president.” “But this year, principle and conscience require me to do just that,” the former elected official continues. “I’m voting for Joe Biden.”

    VIDEO Meekly allowing himself to be brow beaten by a paid professional activist in an elevator pretty much defines the political career of former senator Jeff Flake. He will do anything to prevent such castigation by the leftists again. Thus we now have the spectacle of Flake now supporting Joe Biden for president because he wants to be "bi-partisan" so as to avoid any more elevator type beatdowns by the left. As you can see in the interview, Flake can't even point out why he opposes Trump on any issues except to say that he is a "protectionist" who...

    Washington (CNN)More than two dozen former Republican lawmakers announced Monday they are endorsing Joe Biden for president. Former Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and former Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania are among those throwing their support behind the Democratic presidential nominee through "Republicans for Biden," and the endorsements come on the morning of the first day of the Republican National Convention. Biden has repeatedly emphasized Republican support as he looks to build a broad coalition in his campaign against President Donald Trump.

    The Washington Post's glowing profile of Stacey Abrams last week is just the latest effort of legacy media lionizing failed Democratic candidates. The Washington Post ran a glowing profile of failed Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams Thursday that better fits a paid campaign advertisement than a close and critical look at a potential vice president. In the Post’s cheerleading piece aptly headlined, “The Power of Stacey Abrams,” the legacy outlet paints a gallant portrait of a woman who has never won a statewide election as a progressive superhero ready to heed her own calls to serve in the nation’s...

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) says he will not be casting his vote for President Donald Trump in 2020, citing concerns he had with the president before the 2016 campaign. “I just couldn’t support [Trump] long before he started to run. The birtherism thing was just too much for me. And then it piled on,” Flake, a vocal critic of Trump, told the Washington Post. Flake also warned that a second Trump term could deter younger voters from the GOP, especially on issues concerning the environment and immigration. “So for young people who’ve grown up around minorities or had a...

Flake, who was never shy about his distrust of Trump, said it is “difficult” for Republican lawmakers to speak out against Trump because they do not want to lose their jobs.

    Former Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., is warning his former colleagues in the Senate that they, along with President Trump, will be on trial when the articles of impeachment eventually move from the House to the upper chamber. “President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong,” Flake writes in an op-ed for The Washington Post Friday. […] Flake urges Republicans to consider the evidence, but at the same time not to repeat House Republican assertions the president hasn’t done anything wrong: “He has.” “The willingness...

    Former Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake issued a scathing rebuke of those in his party who stand with President Trump during his impeachment. Flake, 56, who did not run for reelection in 2018, published an op-ed titled, "Jeff Flake: The president is on trial. So are my Senate Republican colleagues," in the Washington Post on Friday. "As we approach the time when you do your constitutional duty and weigh the evidence arrayed against the president, I urge you to remember who we are when we are at our best. And I ask you to remember yourself at your most idealistic,"...

    The rest of the title: It's 'time to risk your careers in favor of your principles.' Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake on Monday urged Republicans in Congress not to support President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection bid, saying they have a moral obligation to put their principles first -- even if it means risking their careers. Flake, a longtime Trump critic who has before argued that the Republican Party should not support the President in 2020, made his case in an op-ed published in The Washington Post titled "Fellow Republicans, there's still time to save your souls," writing that Senate Republicans...

    Former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake made a bold claim on Thursday when he said "at least 35" GOP senators would privately vote for President Trump's impeachment. Appearing at the 2019 Texas Tribune Festival, Flake, a frequent critic of the president, offered his own reaction and predicted that close to three dozen Republican senators would back impeachment. "I heard someone say if there were a private vote there would be 30 Republican votes. That's not true," Flake said during a Q&A. "There would be at least 35."

    Yeah, yeah, I know: “They had two Democratic senators when McCain and Flake were there.” Har dee har. The dirty little secret about Maverick and Flake is that they almost always voted with Trump and McConnell. There was one enormous exception to that rule, when McCain voted no on ObamaCare repeal, but on most legislative matters and judicial confirmations they were on the team. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly won’t be. And if you believe this new poll from OH Predictive Insights, those are the two people who’ll be representing Arizona in the Senate in 2021. Retired astronaut Mark Kelly...

    Show no mercy for you shall receive none and never, ever think that Democrats are your friends; they’re not. They’re the folks who will shank you at the earliest opportunity. The inherent rot of their character, the condescension, and aura of moral superiority they carry, despite being complete and total idiots, is absolutely nauseating. They hate America. They hate us. There is nothing that we share in common. Maybe a tax form ever April, but that’s about it. We do indeed have aliens in America. And these aliens, these disgusting progressive creatures, are not done with Supreme Court Justice Brett...

    I thought we’d end up with zero given the futility of the endeavor. Instead one has already declared, another is making post-Mueller noises about getting in, and a third — the most formidable, although not very formidable — is out there watching. A four-man field, potentially? The more choices there are, the smaller Trump’s landslide margin will be.The one who’s already in is William Weld. The one who’s making noise is Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who spoke at the “Politics and Eggs” event this morning in New Hampshire that all presidential candidates eventually make their way to. Hogan has...
