A spokeswoman for Flake said that the senator’s left arm was still a bit numb on Thursday, but that he said it was “no big deal,” calling it a routine desert experience.
Flake is no stranger to the outdoors. The freshman senator took a trip to an uninhabited island in the Pacific over Memorial Day weekend with two of his sons.
