Hey Arizona, run Jeff Flake as an independent against Sinema

And I bet he will win. In fact I would contribute to his campaign. I know that most politicians sell out but I donít know one that has so blatantly sold out and done so much damage to democracy than your Senator Kristin Sinema.

5. He would not win and he would siphon enough votes away from Sinema to allow the Repub to win.

People really do not give much thought to what Independents do the Democratic vote share.

10. NFW

This guy has no spine, and even if he runs - and wins - as an independent he'll caucus with the Republicans, possibly making McConnell the Senate Majority Leader again.

12. Then we can have someone to the right of Sinema?

I don't get the logic of this move.

13. This is so fucking stupid. There are actual GOOD DEMOCRATS that can win . There was a candidate that

dropped out because Kelly had a better chance than him. I think that candidate would be a good one for democrats to support .

14. No. Just no. Run a Democrat. That should be a no-brainer...

to anyone on this site. Flake is a republican who resigned instead of going against trump.

No cowards needed.

15. Why are you supporting a RW Republican on this board? As bad as Sinema is, Flake is far worse.

16. Flake was and is true to his name

He voiced as much "concern" as Susan Collins, and then voted solid right wing. If he talks like an independent and votes like a Turtle, how independent is he really?

18. Excellent idea.

I, too, would contribute to his run. He'd be an upgrade when it matters: defying McConnell and Trump.

23. Flake talked a good game but defied no one. He would caucus with GOP and we would lose

the majority...that is probably the worst idea I have ever heard...vote Democratic always people.

19. Fix that issue by running someone even worse..

..and who will caucus with the other side? Hmmm, curious strategy.

20. What the heck is this?!

He's a Republican and even if elected as an Independent, he will caucus with Republicans. The only thing that made him "good" was that he was not a fan of Trump but let's remember that, despite his call for a "pause" on Kavanaugh's hearing, he still accepted the results of that sham and voted for Kavanaugh.

No. Just. No. Sinema has lots of issues but she's still nominally a D (for now) and gives us control of the Senate if nothing else.

21. Replace an out-of-favor democrat with an out-of-favor republican?

Yeah, thatís a winning strategy.

22. God no...that is insane. You would merely split the vote and make certain a GOP won...and

Jeff Flake is a Republican...and never vote with us.
