@KelliWard– Billionaire Trump backer to donate six figures to super PAC backing Jeff Flake challenger

Met her a time or two awesome lady!

———————-

One of President Trump’s biggest financial backers is donating big bucks to a super PAC working to defeat Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in next year’s election. Robert Mercer, a hedge-fund billionaire who was one of Trump’s top donors, is donating $300,000 to a super PAC backing former state Sen. Kelli Ward, according to Politico. Ward is challenging Flake in next year’s Republican primary in Arizona. Flake was critical of Trump during the 2016 campaign, and the Arizona Republican recently re-upped his condemnations of the president as he promotes his new book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” In an excerpt of the book published last week, Flake bemoaned the direction the GOP has taken since Trump assumed the presidency. The Arizona Republican’s opposition to Trump has earned the president’s disapproval. During a White House press briefing last week, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders urged Flake to stop opposing Trump.
