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.
