Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who broke with his GOP colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday and joined with Democrats in calling for another FBI investiagtion of Supreme Court nominee Jeff Kavanaugh, told CBS’s 60 Minutes that he never would have done what he did if he were running for reelection this year. “No, not a chance,” he said, smiling. …

On the Sunday edition of 60 Minutes, host Scott Pelley asked Flake, “Senator Flake, you’ve announced that you’re not running for reelection, and I wonder, could you have done this, if you were running for reelection?”

Flake, smiling, said, “No, no, not a chance. No, no. There’s no value in reaching across the aisle. There’s no currency for that anymore. There’s no incentive.”
