Seriously under water doesn’t even begin to describe how Jeff Flake is drowning in his own race for re-election to the senate. He’s a distant third behind front runner Dr. Kelli Ward and “undecided.”
It looks like Ward is the run away favorite.
Breitbart ran this story about the latest poll results in that race:
Incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is underwater badly in his home state, with just 21 percent of Arizona Republicans supporting him for reelection against challenger Dr. Kelli Ward—who gets 47 percent support—per a new poll from JMC Analytics.
The poll, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release by JMC Analytics’ John Couvillon, shows Flake in almost irreparable shape ahead of his reelection bid in 2018. That an incumbent U.S. Senator like Flake could be polling as low as 21 percent in his own primary, while a challenger like Ward has pulled 26 points ahead of him at 47 percent, is almost unthinkable with nearly a full year to go until the August 2018 primary. Three percent of the electorate said they would vote for Nicholas Tutora, another candidate, and 29 percent are undecided, when asked which candidate they would vote for between Ward, Flake, and Tutora.
And the president weighed in on the news:
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!

Breitbart radio aired this interview with Dr. Kelli Ward.
Won’t it be great to have at least on senator from Arizona that isn’t acting as an obstructionist to the Trump agenda? Trump is right. Flake is toxic.
