He responded saying, “Well, I think if you look at Joe Biden’s record, he’s not been that.”
She replies saying, “But that’s what he says.”
Flake responds saying, “Right. And this is a primary, too, that he’s just been through. He also said during his primary that he would work with Republicans, that he would work across the aisle; that’s not a popular thing to say in a Democratic primary, but he did. So I think if you look at his record, and what he’s been all about for so many years, he’s a creature of the Senate. He knows how to compromise. He knows how to work across the aisle, and I’m confident he’ll do that in the future.”
