Former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake (R), of the infamous Senate ‘Gang of 8’ immigration reform bill of 2013, has joined the group of “NeverTrump” Republicans that are now supporting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over President Donald Trump.

“Fellow Republicans, there’s still time to save your souls,”stated Flake a past op-ed he wrote.

“My fellow Republicans, it is time to risk your careers in favor of your principles. Whether you believe the president deserves impeachment, you know he does not deserve reelection,” wrote Flake.

“Our country will have more presidents. But principles, well, we get just one crack at those. For those who want to put America first, it is critically important at this moment in the life of our country that we all, here and now, do just that.”
