Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, author of a book criticizing President Trump, gave a "fiery speech" on the Senate floor Tuesday to announce that he will not seek reelection. He would very likely have lost his primary. While Steve Bannon is certainly happy today, he'd better hope that a Democrat doesn't end up picking up that seat.
Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, who has also announced his retirement, also slammed President Trump in an interview with CNN, repeatedly calling him (in so many words) a liar and not fit for the job.
