Former Arizona GOP chairman Robert Graham and State Treasurer Jeff DeWit will meet this week to figure out who should run against U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake in the Republican primary, Graham told the Arizona Capitol Times.
Graham said he and DeWit will not run against each other, and they’re trying to figure out who would make the best Flake challenger, whether it be him, DeWit or another person.
“Now we’re going to sit down and really work through [it]. The president encouraged us to talk and figure it out,” Graham said.
As reported last week by Politico, when President Donald Trump visited Arizona for a campaign rally on August 22, he talked with Graham and DeWit backstage and stressed the need for a strong challenger to Flake.
