Billionaire Trump ally backs Flake challenger in GOP primary

August 10, 2017

New York hedge fund billionaire and conservative donor Robert Mercer has made a major investment in a super PAC supporting Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-Ariz.) primary challenger, a sign that Trump’s allies may be girding for battle against Republican incumbents they view as insufficiently loyal to the president.

Mercer, a close ally of White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon and one of the most influential GOP donors in the country, has plowed $300,000 into a group backing former state Sen. Kelli Ward in her effort to unseat Flake.

Politico first reported the news.

    What is wrong with getting rid of deadwood politicians? After the crap the Flake has been spouting about the President and his policies, why should Mercer support him? Flake campaigned as a Conservative and goes on TV speaking like a liberal. I would back anyone but Flake.
