Jeff Flake to run against Trump in 2020?

On Friday evening, retiring Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake said in an interview on CNN that he hasn’t yet ruled out running against President Trump in 2020.

“Let me ask you this. As you’re leaving Congress, as you’re leaving Washington, you’ve said a Republican needs to challenge Donald Trump in 2020. Is that going to be you on the Republican side, Senator?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked.

“There are others that seem more willing than I am. I’ve been doing this for 18 years now. It’s – it’s nice to look forward to a little break. But somebody does need to challenge the President,” Flake stated.

“Will you think about it, do you think? Will you consider it?” Acosta followed up.

Flake responded, “Like I said, I haven’t ruled it out, I’m a long way from there. But somebody needs to. I think that the country needs to be reminded what it means to be conservative, certainly on the Republican side, and what it means to be decent as well because we need a lot more of that in our politics.”

Trump has also said he hopes Flake will run against him.
