GOP Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska says one of the upcoming party conventions could still offer a “surprise” and nominate a candidate “our kids and grandkids won’t be ashamed of,” writing that neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton “embody the best of America.”
“Most of our country believes this election is a disaster,” Mr. Sassewrote in a Medium post Monday evening. “Unless something changes, America — the greatest experiment in self-government the world has ever known — is going to spend the next four months shouting that the other party’s nominee is the bigger liar.”
“Tragically, everyone knows that neither front-runner tells the truth,” he wrote.
Mr. Sasse, first elected in 2014, has been one of the more prominent “never Trump” adherents within the GOP. He said he was writing the open letter in advance of the national party conventions “with sympathy for the millions of Americans who yearn to cast our ballots for someone we judge to be trustworthy.”Read the rest of the story HERE.
