Jeff Flake on Solar Energy, Nuclear Power, and How GOP Needs to Wake up on Climate

April 30, 2018

Doing a brief speaking tour in Philadelphia area.  In the meantime, remember the Dark Snow fundraiser still ongoing.


Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, speaking in New Hampshire (stick a pin in that) March 2018.


Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, delivered a series of verbal blows against the President while making a stop in the early primary state of New Hampshire as he continues to mull a possible GOP challenge in 2020.


“I hope that someone does run the Republican primary, somebody to challenge the President,” he said Friday after a man in the audience asked if he’d make a White House run. “I think the odds that I will are long, but I’ve not ruled it out.”
Flake’s message targeted the “Never Trump” movement, as he sought to paint himself as a conservative alternative to the President.
“I stand before you today, the rarest of species, the American conservative. Americanus, Never Trumpus. Subgenus: RINO,” he quipped. “There’s a scurrilous rumor afoot that we’re not only rare but endangered. I don’t believe it.”
The senator from Arizona, who was facing a tough re-election bid and decided not to run for a second term, spoke at the Politics & Eggs series, a must-do stop for potential presidential contenders hosted by the New England Council and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.
Any Republican thinking of coming out on climate should listen to Jerry Taylor’s story.
