When Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden helped orchestrate the endorsement of former Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) over the summer, he hosted one of the most loyal anti-Trump Republicans and most prominent in his network of swing state apostates.
Now the former senator is in sprint mode. With less than two weeks to go to Nov. 3, Flake says he’s stepped up his awareness on Capitol Hill with former congressional colleagues who he and members of the Biden campaign think are worth talking to before the day of the ballot.
In an interview with the Daily Beast on Tuesday afternoon, Flake said he was in regular contact with the former vice president’s campaign and remained cautiously optimistic, like-minded Republican officials might share his pro-Biden preference in the home stretch.
