Sen. John McCain’s boy Sen. Jeff Flake has chosen not to seek re-election as he is looking at a significant challenge from Tea Party favorite and conservative powerhouse Kelli Ward.
Let’s be honest here. Flake would have lost anyway, and it’s a smart move to save face albeit a cowardly step at that.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., often seen as a critic of President Trump, said Tuesday he won’t seek re-election in 2018.
In a statement to the Arizona Republic, Flake said he had become convinced that “there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party.”
Flake was up for re-election next year and faced a stiff primary challenge from Kelli Ward, who is backed by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
“This spell will pass, but not by next year,” Flake told the Republic.
Flake has had a tulmultuous relationship with the Trump administration. In August, he criticized Trump’s immigration policy in a New York Times opinion piece. In response, the president tweeted that Flake was “WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in the Senate.”
“Traditional conservative” to Jeff Flake apparently means blanket amnesty and open borders. LOL. pic.twitter.com/mUy1CreqZi

What will McCain do now, since his boy is leaving? Or maybe they timed this perfectly. Either way, it’s a win for Trump supporters as they see the swamp thinning the herd.
