Sen. Jeff Flake (AZ-R) is somewhere between an establishment Republican and a Libertarian. That he's aligned with Biden later one is purely because of opposition to MAGA. If MAGA goes away, Flake jumps back into the party as an active ally. Several times Flake was mentioned as having the most fiscally conservative voting record.
