Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse might consider voting for Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.
The freshman Republican senator said that he and wife Melissa are going to take some time in October to consider their vote for president.
When he was asked whether he would consider voting for Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson, he told the Journal Star he "hadn't really looked closely at it yet," but "the Libertarian Party is something I would certainly consider in the long term."
The Journal Star reports that Sasse is the only Republican senator who declared his opposition to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Sasse said that many in Nebraska agree with his stance. "People, perhaps 10 to 1, are saying thanks for saying what we believe," Sasse said, the Journal Star reports.
He made the comments after addressing high school juniors at the opening of Boys State on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.
During his address, the senator said that he believed the two-party system could be on its way out, because they can't explain their positions well.
"Don't be so sure the two-party political system continues long-term," Sasse said.
The Nebraska senator said he didn't believe Democrats or Republicans had plans in place for the evolving political landscape. "Both parties are exhausted," Sasse told the Journal Star, adding, "They probably don't have big ideas for the change that is coming."
