Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told a National Press Club audience March 15 that his resistance to President Trump's behavior helped persuade him not to seek a second term.
Flake, speaking to a luncheon audience in the Holeman Lounge, read a prepared speech that was highly critical of Trump. But first out of the box during the question and answer period was Club President Andrea Edney's question: "Are you running for president?"
"Next question," Flake said, flashing his famed smile, then added, "Running for president is not in my plans. But I'm not ruling anything out."
