Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse announced via Twitter that he didn’t even bother to wait until his state’s presidential primary to cast his vote.
Nebraska’s winner-take-all primary isn’t even until May 10th. But Sasse jumped at the opportunity to cast an early ballot for his fellow Republican Senator in the race, Ted Cruz.
Sasse happily tweeted that he and his wife both cast early ballots.
“Happy to report that Melissa and I just early-voted for @tedcruz to #StopTrump,” he wrote. “Time for conservatives to unite here in winner-take-all Nebr[aska].”
Sasse’s disdain for the Republican leader, Donald Trump, is well known. He refers to Trump and Democrat leader Hillary Clinton as two fundamentally dishonest New York liberals in the race and states very pointedly that he could not support Trump, even if he becomes the party’s nominee.
“My current answer for who I would support in a hypothetical matchup between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton is: Neither of them,” he posted on his Facebook page. “I sincerely hope we select one of the other GOP candidates, but if Donald Trump ends up as the GOP nominee, conservatives will need to find a third option.”
He describes Trump as being void of core principles and asserts that the American people deserve better.
Sasse appeared in various campaign events with Cruz prior to the first Iowa caucus, but he stopped short of making a formal endorsement.
