Congressman Jeff Flake has launched his first campaign commercial for his U.S. Senate run. In other Flake news, USA Today reports that Flake raised more than $100K for his Senate campaign in 24 hours:
A fiscally minded group that successfully backed several upstart candidates for U.S. Senate last year has raised $100,000 for Rep. Jeff Flake's bid in Arizona.
Flake, a Republican known for his passion against wasteful spending, is running for the seat being vacated by Sen. Jon Kyl, the No. 2 GOP leader in the Senate.
The Club for Growth PAC raised that money for Flake in one day, right after endorsing the congressman for the Senate. "This is a huge haul for one day," said Chris Chocola, the club's president.
