Nebraska GOP rebukes Sen. Ben Sasse, stops short of censure

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Aaron Sanderford

COLUMBUS, Neb. — Nebraska’s most politically involved Republicans, many of whom have been itching to give U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse a piece of their mind, sent him a message on Saturday.

But the Nebraska Republican Party stopped short of formally censuring Sasse. Instead, core activists on the GOP’s State Central Committee passed a resolution attacking Sasse’s work as a senator.

Even as voters just re-elected Sasse with nearly 63% support, the resolution expresses “deep disappointment and sadness” about Sasse’s six years in service and presses him to represent “the people of Nebraska to Washington,” not the other way around.

It criticizes his legislative record as thin, his record of returning constituent calls and emails as lacking and his choice to leave the Senate Agricultural Committee as misplaced. It criticizes him for failing to follow through on his pledge when running in 2014 to repeal and replace Obamacare.

2. If he was reelected with 63 % of the votes despite his anti-trump stance

he probably does not care what the Nebraska GOP thinks. He's got the voters, they need him.
