Jones is facing off against GOP candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct and assault with several girls when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.
Flake has been highly critical of Moore and of GOP leaders who have backed him, including President Trump.
“A Roy Moore victory is no victory for the GOP and the nation,” Flake said Monday.
Flake said that he would not support Moore before the sexual misconduct allegations came to light, based on Moore’s past comments that Muslims should not be able to serve in Congress.
Flake has doubled down on his criticisms of Moore since the allegations and has said it is a “big mistake” for the president to throw his support behind Moore.
Trump gave Moore his full endorsement on Monday and reiterated his support of Moore Tuesday while sitting right next to Flake at lunch with GOP senators.
