Sen Jeff Flake of Arizona must really love his lawn

or it hasn't been tended to in a long while

When asked if he was attending the Republican Convention Sen Flake said, “I have to mow my lawn,”

I can understand. Be at Il Douche's convention or be thousands of miles away.

List of others who will be unavailable
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida.
New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte.
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
Ohio Sen. Rob Portman.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois.
Former Gov. Luis Fortuno of Puerto Rico.
Former Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.”

Take heart though... I heard Kid Rock may speak

I also read Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers might as well

don't require mowing... ever. Don't know where Flake lives... perhaps in one of the few areas that grow a lot of grass.

needs him to mow it. Suspect that's a very pointed little "in" joke among people who haven't raked or mowed anything in decades.

This DOES definitely look like the desert property of a Republican who denies man-made global warming. I'm guessing he doesn't "believe" in tragic depletion of fresh water supplies either.

Besides maybe Kid Rock, the Trumpster's wife and kids, who else will be there?
