Flake 2020? Guess who’s in New Hampshire 3 days after he became new Democrat hero?

Sen. Jeff Flake appears to be on a victory lap of sorts after his deplorable performance at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Following on the heels of his theatrical declaration that his vote on Kavanaugh was conditional upon another FBI investigation, the Arizona Republican set the rumors mills running as he headed to New Hampshire.

Flake appeared no worse for wear after his vote, having a grand time alongside his friend, Democrat Sen. Chris Coons at the Global Citizens Festival on the weekend.

The spineless lawmaker joked with the liberal crowd to “feel free to join me in an elevator any time,” making light of the incident in which two George Soros-funded protesters confronted him in an elevator at the Capitol before the Committee vote.

Flake, who later admitted on “60 Minutes” that he would not have pulled the stunt and caved to Democrats if he had been running for reelection, was then off on his whirlwind schedule to New Hampshire.

Riding on his new-found fame, Flake is making his second visit to the state which holds the first primary in the race for the White House, sparking speculation that he may be teeing up for a 2020 challenge to President Trump’s re-election.

Flake is scheduled to speak at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on the campus of St. Anselm College on Monday, according to the Concord Monitor. His talk, “After the Deluge: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle,” will be his second at the venue.

Flake’s scheduled appearance in New Hampshire instantly raised eyebrows and fueled speculation. It also unleashed a torrent of negative reaction on Twitter.
