Introducing Friends of the Institute

As a tribute to Senator Kennedy's 47-year career, gifts of $47 and up recognize you as a Friend of the Institute.

2018 Senate Election

Senator Jeff Flake

Jeff Flake, retiring. After having served in the House of Representatives for 10 years, Flake won election to his first term in the Senate in 2012. On October 24, 2017, Flake announced on the Senate floor that he would not be seeking reelection in 2018. Flake’s speech was also noted for its indictment of the Republican Party and President Trump. Arizona went for Trump by less than 4 points in 2016, so Flake’s retirement leaves an opening for Democrats to win the seat in November.
