Jeff Flake told a crowd in Payson at a meet-and-greet that he thinks the Unted States should go back to the election of U.S. Senators by state legislatures. We changed our Constitution via the 17th Amendment in 1912 to allow the popular election of the Senate. Flake thinks that was mistake. He thinks it better for state legislatures to elect half of our Congress behind closed doors rather than in public campaigns.
So, apparently, Jeff Flake doesn't want you to vote for him (or even be able to...). I advise you oblige him.
