Nebraska’s Ben Sasse faces heat at home for Trump stance

Nebraska’s Ben Sasse faces heat at home for Trump stance
RRN/ U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse speaks to about 60 people Monday evening August 15, 2016 in a town hall forum in Lexington.

LINCOLN, Neb. – It’s been a long summer for Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a conservative Republican whose refusal to support GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has led to angry confrontations at local meetings and criticism from leaders in the state party.

Sasse told The Associated Press that he’s speaking his conscience.
The first-term senator’s position hasn’t gone over well with many of the party’s most engaged voters in the overwhelmingly conservative state.

Sasse’s supporters note that many Nebraska Republicans share his misgivings about Trump. Trump received 61 percent of the vote in the state’s May primary even though all other candidates had dropped out of the race.
