Another anti-Trumper gets called out.
The Nebraska Republican Party has rebuked GOP Senator Ben Sasse over the fact he voted to impeachment Trump.
The Nebraska Republican Party officially rebuked Sen. Ben Sasse Saturday over his vote in favor of impeaching former President Trump earlier this month, CNN reports.
The state GOP reportedly did not censure him, but made its disapproval over his actions clear, arguing that he wasn’t representing his constituents’ wishes.
“The Nebraska Republican Party Central Committee expresses its deep disappointment and sadness with respect to the service of Senator Ben Sasse and calls for an immediate readjustment whereby he represents the people of Nebraska to Washington and not Washington to the people of Nebraska,” the party’s resolution reads, according to CNN.
It went on to argue that Sasse’s criticism of Trump and support the former president’s impeachment trial worked to the advantage of Democrats, who used his comments “as justification for a truncated impeachment process that denied the President due process.”
Six of the Seven GOP Senators who voted to impeach have been rebuked.
I wish he was censured but him getting called out like this is a warning to Republicans going forward. Stand by your voters or you will be rebuked and face a primary.
“I care about a lot of the people, but I don’t really care about the censure,” Sasse told Politico ahead of the Nebraska GOP’s decision.
The state GOP, however, decided not to censure Sasse, but noted its disapproval of the senator’s actions, arguing that Sasse wasn’t representing his constituents’ desires.
“There are a lot of really good people involved in party activism. But I don’t think they’re at all representative of regular Nebraskans,” Sasse continued. “Nebraska is a lot Trumpier than I am.”
