Jeff Flake On Ad Slamming Him for Not Supporting Defunding of Obamacare: ‘Whatever’

by Katrina Trinko

Senate Conservatives Fund released a radio ad yesterday blasting GOP Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona for not announcing support for the strategy of defunding Obamacare in the upcoming continuing resolution for the 2014 fiscal year.

In the ad, which will begin running tomorrow, a narrator says, “Jeff Flake won’t stand up to President Obama and join conservatives in pledging to oppose funding for the implementation of Obamacare.”

In a tweet today, Flake shrugged off the criticism:


Flake was endorsed by the Fund in his 2012 senate bid.

The Senate Conservatives Ad is running similar ads against Senators Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), Richard Burr (North Carolina), Lamar Alexander (Tennessee) and Thad Cochran (Mississippi).
