CNN reports that former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake has ruled out running for president in 2020.
Former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, whose vociferous criticism of Donald Trump sparked widespread speculation that he could mount a primary challenge to the President, flatly said Tuesday he will not launch a primary campaign against Trump in 2020.
"I've always said that I do hope that there is a Republican who challenges the President in the primary. I still hope that somebody does. But that somebody will not be me. I will not be a candidate," Flake said on "CBS This Morning."
