Though of course Flake's objections to Trump were always more about tone than content.
I don't know who the nominees will ultimately be. Sinema and Ward are the frontrunners right now, but the primary's not for another nine months, and again, it's likely that someone more mainstream than Chemtrail Kelli will enter on the Republican side.
Regardless of outcome, I think Sinema (or whoever ends up getting the nomination) has the best odds of winning a Senate race of any Arizona Democrat in 30 years.
That's pretty much the best-case scenario. She's as moderate as Arizona Republicans get, and I think she can beat Ward.
The trouble is that she'll likely be a tougher opponent against Sinema than either Ward or Flake. But that's a risk I'm willing to take. "Hope the crazy candidate gets nominated so she'll lose" is not a good strategy in Arizona. (It's obviously not a good strategy at the national level, either.) I'd rather Sinema than McSally, but I'd rather McSally than Ward.
Meanwhile, seeing a lot of rumors today that Hatch will announce his retirement and Romney will run for his seat. That honestly doesn't sound so bad; it's not like Utah is going to elect anyone better than Romney, and there are a lot of options that would be worse.
Flynn and Junior seem like the next lowest-hanging fruit. And Kushner sure "forgot" a lot of contacts with Russians in his paperwork.
And as someone from Sinema's current district, well, I don't like her very much but "the most conservative Democrat in the House" is the sort of thing that Arizona voters are likelier to see as a feature than a bug.
And I'm not from Gosar's district, but man, that guy's a dumbass.
