Trump Slams Sen Flake, Endorses Challenger

President Donald Trump threw his support behind the primary challenger to Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s seat, criticizing Flake for being too weak on the border issue in a tweet Thursday morning.

“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” Trump tweeted.

Ward, a physician and noted Trump supporter, is running against Flake for the Senate seat in the 2018 Republican Senate primary in Arizona. Ward is already set to bring on political operatives to her campaign that have connections to Trump.

“I, as well as others, are frustrated with Senator Flake’s weak style,” Ward told The Daily Caller News Foundation previously. “He hasn’t accomplished a thing in D.C., and his values do not align with the people of Arizona.”
