Who do you want for the 2020 ballot?

Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican who spent his final months in the Senate as President Donald Trump’s most vocal GOP critic, says he won’t mount a primary challenge to Trump.

"I have always said that I do hope that there is a Republican who challenges the president in the primary," Flake said in an interview on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday. "I still hope that somebody does, but that somebody won’t be me. I will not be a candidate."
