Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) hasn't exactly been setting aside time to hang out with Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) lately. He opted against an opportunity to appear at a border event with Flake and other GOP members of the state's congressional delegation last week.
But the two are slated to attend the same fundraiser in Washington early next week, just days after Franks will reportedly announce his entrance into the Senate race this Saturday, joining Flake in the GOP primary.
Both Flake and Franks are scheduled to appear at a fundraiser for Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu (R) on April 6 in Washington, according to an invitation to the fundraiser.
You may remember Babeu as the sheriff in Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) 2010 "Complete the Danged Fence" television ad.
