Trump Donor Gives $300,000 To Super PAC Supporting Flake Primary Challenger

More than a year out, the prospects for U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake’s re-election are of great interest — and speculation.

Three potential primary challengers have reportedly had meetings at the White House. Flake already has one GOP primary opponent: former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who lost to John McCain in last year’s Republican primary.

And now, Politico is reporting that a top donor to President Trump is giving $300,000 to a super PAC supporting Ward. Alex Isenstadt wrote the article about that and joins us now.
