Jeff Flake

Jeffry Lane Flake (born December 31, 1962) is an American politician serving as the junior United States Senator from Arizona since 2013 alongside former 2008 presidential nominee John McCain.

Born in Snowflake, Arizona, Flake is a graduate of Brigham Young University and was a Mormon missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to South Africa before working in public affairs, serving as Executive Director of the Foundation for Democracy in Namibia and Executive Director of the Goldwater Institute. A member of the Republican Party, Flake was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 2000 for Arizona's 1st congressional district. He was redistricted to the Arizona's 6th congressional district during his first term and was reelected six times, serving from 2001 to 2013 and assigned to the Committee on Appropriations.

Flake decided to run for the U.S. Senate in 2012. He defeated three challengers in the Republican primary and, after a close race, beat Democrat Richard Carmona, the former Surgeon General of the United States, in the general election by 49.2% to 46.2%. Flake was sworn in in January 2013 and serves on the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, the Committee on Foreign Relations, the Committee on the Judiciary and the Special Committee on Aging.

Owing to his opposition to U.S. President Trump, Flake announced on October 24, 2017, that he would retire at the end of his current term instead of seeking reelection in 2018.
