Forbes to Newsmax: Arizona's Flake Would Boost Senate 'Conservative Core'

Wednesday, 04 Apr 2012 02:58 PM

By Jim Meyers and John Bachman

Forbes magazine editor Steve Forbes says Arizona voters should elect Rep. Jeff Flake to the Senate as part of the “good conservative core” that will have a profound impact in Congress.

Forbes, who ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 1996 and 2000, is currently active with the conservative Club for Growth. Discussing some of the candidates the Club is backing, Forbes tells Newsmax.TV: “Jeff Flake is a very good candidate. There’s no incumbent there — Senator John Kyl is retiring.

“Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel in Ohio [running against incumbent Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown] is another good one.

“The key thing, whether they’re running against an incumbent or running for a seat where you don’t have an incumbent or challenging a Democratic incumbent, is if they get to Washington are they going to have that kind of dynamism and perspective and understanding why they’re there that so often gets lost when you go to Washington.

“And so if you get a good conservative core there in the Senate, people like Senator Mike Lee from Utah, get allies there, then that’s going to have a profound impact.

“I think Romney will win the election against Obama. But if you have a good conservative core in the Senate you’re going to get things on his desk, the president’s desk, that I think are going to be much stronger for the country, much better for the country, than if they weren’t there.

“So this isn’t just about winning a particular race, it’s also about having the cadres, so to speak, who can make positive things happen.”
