A political action committee has formed to draft Sen. Ben Sasse for president, one week after the GOP firebrand from Nebraska asked for a third-party candidate to emerge because both Trump and Hillary Clinton are "terrible options."

"It is now obvious that choice now lies outside the failed traditional two party framework," Daniel Ledoux, a conservative strategist who co-chairs the new Draft Sasse PAC, told Caffeinated Thoughts, a Christian and conservative news and opinion website.

"After … [the] shocking Trump victory, it has become painfully clear that principled Americans from across the country are looking for another choice, one rooted in the strong constitutional values that made our country great."

The Draft Sasse PAC, which is not affiliated with the senator, is made up of Conservatives, Libertarians, Independents and Blue Dog Democrats.

On May 5th, Sasse wrote an "Open Letter to Majority America" on Facebook, stating:

"With Clinton and Trump, the fix is in. Heads, they win; tails, you lose. Why are we confined to these two terrible options? This is America. If both choices stink, we reject them and go bigger."

He recommended the nation draft "an honest leader" who will "focus on 70 percent solutions for the next four years? You know . . . an adult?"

Ledoux told Caffeinated Thoughts: "Senator Sasse, like us, is not fooled. We refuse to place the fate of our country into the hands of those with the shady moral character and dubious constitutional understanding of Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton."
