Sasse Spokesman Statement on President’s Endorsement
“Ben’s grateful for the President’s kind words. They don’t always see eye to eye, but they’ve built a relationship where they work together when they agree and they wrestle hard when they don’t. That’s a good thing. This underscores what we’ve been saying: Nebraskans are conservative, Ben’s one of the three most conservative senators, and he’s going to win the Nebraska way—with hard work and hustle in each of the state’s 93 counties.”
