Trivia/ Facts that you probably didn’t know
- Flake decided to run for the U.S. Senate in 2012. He defeated three challengers in the Republican primary and, after a close race, beat Democrat Richard Carmona, the former Surgeon General of the United States, in the general election by 49.2% to 46.2%.
- Owing to his opposition to U.S. President Trump, Flake (a libertarian-leaning fiscal conservative) announced on October 24, 2017, that he would retire at the end of his current term instead of seeking reelection in 2018.
We have given into the politics of anger – the belief that riling up the base can make up for failed attempts to broaden the electorate. These are the spasms of a dying party…We knew all of this before the last election, but quickly set it aside for the sugar high of populism, nativism and demagoguery. The crash from this sugar high will be particularly unpleasant.
I wish that we, as a party, would have stood up, for example, when the birtherism thing was going along. A lot of people did stand up but not enough.
