Flake Announces Run For Kyl's Seat

Posted By on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 at 3:52 PM

No great surprise: Congressman Jeff Flake says he'll run for the U.S. Senate seat held by the retiring Jon Kyl:

U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona has announced he is a candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012.

Flake made the announcement Monday in Phoenix at the same hotel where Republican Sen. Jon Kyl announced Thursday that he would not seek re-election.

Flake says his priorities include balancing the federal government's budget, securing the border and working on transportation and water policy issues.


Flake says broader action is needed on illegal immigration than just border security but that border security "needs to be the focus."
