Bannon praises Flake opponent

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Former presidential strategist Steve Bannon slammed the GOP establishment as he threw his support behind a challenger to incumbent Republican Sen. Jeff Flake in Arizona.

Bannon’s speech at Tuesday’s event for Kelli Ward came as part of his broader attack on Republican incumbents. He praised Ward but mainly condemned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate leaders.

His comments attacking McConnell came despite President Donald Trump’s plea for him Monday to retreat in his war on the Republican establishment.

Ward lost last year to Republican Sen. John McCain, who went on to win a sixth term. She’s Flake’s only Republican challenger, but others are considering jumping in because Ward is considered a flawed candidate by many.

    The voters in Arizona had a golden opportunity to dump RINO McCain and
    replace him with Kelli Ward in the 2016 State Primaries. They blew
    that big time. What were the voters in Arizona smoking when they
    sent him back to Washington? Hopefully they will not be smoking the
    same stuff and send Flake back to Washington Next year.
