Frequent Trump critic Sen. Jeff Flake to visit New Hampshire as 2020 looms

In my mind

The anti-Trump GOPer seems to be making some moves towards a possible challenge of the, well, president.

And why not? He seems to be one of the most vocal critics of Trump from within the GOP. He does not the president's silliness and stupidity at times. The president's popularity among GOPers is a bit questionable.

epublican Sen. Jeff Flake, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, will stop in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Friday, adding fuel to speculation that the retiring senator will launch a GOP challenge against the sitting President in 2020.

"I'm just going for the weather," Flake quipped this week, talking about his upcoming trip.

The senator from Arizona, who was facing a tough re-election bid and decided not to run for a second term, isn't knocking down the idea of a presidential campaign, especially against a man who Flake has accused of "charting a very dangerous path" for the country.
