Is Jeff Flake Jon Kyl's Replacement?

Within a day or so of Jon Kyl's retirement announcement, GOP House budget hawk Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced that he will run for the seat.

There doesn't seem to be much to keep Flake from securing Kyl's base. And, just now, I think Arizonans are probably more concerned with economics than with fringe social issues. But, then again, I don't live there, nor do I travel there frequently.

With the GOP's overwhelming majority, they can afford to send an economic true believer up to the Senate to assist Tom Coburn and Jim DeMint.

Let's hope Flake gets the nomination and the seat in 2012.
