Nebraska Republicans approved a resolution at its state convention Saturday to reprimand freshman Sen. Ben Sasse for his attacks on presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The resolution was introduced by Sam Fischer, a top Cornhusker State GOP operative who is the nephew of Sen. Deb Fischer, The Gateway Pundit reports. The convention was held in Omaha.

The move was approved 400-8.

Trump won the state's 36 delegates in its primary on Tuesday.

Sasse, 44, has consistently attacked Trump throughout his campaign and last week called for a third-party candidate. A super PAC formed this week to draft the senator for a presidential bid.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Sasse was approached by 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a possible third-party run.

James Wegmann, the senator's spokesman, declined to comment to the Post — saying that "the answer is no" about an independent campaign.
