There is a price to pay for being a traitor to one’s own party, and both of Arizona’s senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain, are paying it.
Of the 100 US senators, Jeff Flake is the 100th most popular (rock bottom), according to Statista. PPP has Flake at an 18% approval rating in their latest poll.
Flake is up for reelection in 2018. Surely, the GOP will be ready with a solid primary challenger, given Flake’s unpopularity among his own constituents. (Note to the voters of Arizona: Send a patriot to Washington next time!)

In the Statista poll (below), Songbird McCain is not doing a lot better at 97th place among 100 senators.
Given the prognosis for McCain’s medical condition, explained in the video below, it appears likely that Republican Governor Doug Ducey will be appointing a replacement.
“NBC News medical correspondent Dr. John Torres tells TODAY that Sen. John McCain has “a very aggressive, very fast-growing” form of cancer. He says a treatment combining chemotherapy and radiation could be problematic because McCain is 80 years old.”
