I think you misjudge a large portion of the far right here in AZ. They don't look at the endorsement as much as how Flake aligns with what they believe, which is why they love Trump. So all they see is Flake going against the Trump message, and not supporting him based on that, regardless of endorsement because Flake would never have embraced Trump, even with his endorsement.

McSally could have played that well enough to defeat him in a two way primary, if it includes Ward and Arpaio then Flake wins and it is still a dog fight with Sinema, with the wildcard there being far right voters that stay home because they hate Flake.

I understand that, I just think that if Trump were big enough to compliment him rather than attack him the far right wouldn't hate Flake as much. Flake was basically always with Trump when it came time to vote, and Trump could have made that the message.

You really need to understand the depth the GOP hardliners here have for Flake, I don't think Trump could have saved him.
