Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona — ripped by conservatives for not pushing for a government shutdown to stop Obamacare — scored a ringing endorsement from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Friday.

“I had the opportunity to serve with Sen. Flake for 12 years, and he’s a great individual and a strong conservative, and I can’t say enough good things about my friend,” Pence, a GOP powerhouse, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program. “But I’ll leave the Washington debates to Washington.”

Flake is being criticized by the Senate Conservatives Fund — founded by former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint — for declining to sign its pledge to defund the Affordable Care Act.
A recent radio ad released by the group complains, “Jeff Flake used to be one of us, but now he has become one of them.”

"We elected Jeff Flake to fight Obamacare, not accept it. Jeff Flake could help stop Obamacare by simply refusing to fund it. But he won't pledge to oppose all funding for Obamacare."

Flake has said he wants to defund Obamacare, but not shutter the government.
