We would rather have flakes than communists.

On Tuesday, Arizona Rep. and GOP Senate nominee Jeff Flake easily defeated his challenger Wil Cardon with 70 percent of the vote. Although he was outraised, Flake received backing from John McCain, Tea Party Republicans and retiring Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl.

Flake’s next challenge for Kyl’s open seat:

The six-term congressman now faces Democrat Richard Carmona, a former U.S. Surgeon General and decorated Vietnam War veteran originally from New York, to contest a seat that Republicans need if they are to have a chance to take control of the Senate in the November election.
