GOP Senator Jeff Flake says he won't run in 2018

Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, announces he won't run for re-election. In a Senate floor speech, that appears aimed at President Donald Trump, Flake criticized the disregard of truth and decency he says is undermining U.S. democracy.

“I have decided that I will be better able to represent the people of Arizona and to better serve my country and my conscience by freeing myself from the political considerations that consume far too much bandwidth and would cause me to compromise far too many principles.

"To that end, I am announcing today that my service in the Senate will conclude at the end of my term in early January 2019,” said Flake.
