US Rep Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to Announce Running for U.S. Senate Seat of Retiring Sen. Jon Kyl

 

As speculated last week when US Senator John Kyl (R-AZ) announced that he would retire at the end of his present term and would not seek reelection in 2012, 5 terms US Representative Jeff Flake (R-AZ 06) will announce tomorrow that he will run for the open Senate seat. This is welcome news for Conservatives. This will be an interesting race for 2012 as the mood of the country is that to be fiscally conservative. As fate would have it, that is exactly what Flake is.

Flake’s decision to run for the Senate is sure to rev up Republican competition for his GOP-heavy congressional district. He’s also expected to have plenty of competition in the Senate primary.

As reported atMyFox Phoenix, other names mentioned to possibly run for the open seat include Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Sheriff Joe Arpaio,  former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth and former state attorney general Grant Woods.

UPDATE I: US Rep Flake Announced Bid to Run for US Senate.

      I just hope Janet runs for this seat Arizona has had enough of Republican hatred . Go cry with your tea party, %80 of voters want to cut out loop holes for the rich but not you. Enjoy your time in bed with the rich because its about to end. If you don’t quit kissing grover norquists butt your done in this state.
