American Bridge Statement on Jeff Flake Giving Up on Reelection

In response to the news that Senator Jeff Flake is giving up on reelection, American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp made the following statement:

“Arizona’s Senate seat just took a giant step toward turning blue in 2018. Jeff Flake is giving up on his reelection bid for one reason: despite supporting almost every aspect of the Trump agenda, he lost the support of the Republican grassroots who are furious at their own leaders. From Roy Moore to Kelli Ward, Republican voters are eager to nominate extreme candidates who create serious openings for Democrats to win in Arizona and across the country.”
