Why We Are Backing Ben Sasse In The Nebraska GOP Senate Race

Ben Sasse and Family

Nebraska’s GOP primary election is Tuesday, May 13. The increasingly negative GOP Senate primary has caused us to go back and review exactly why we backed Ben Sasse for the Republican nomination, and to conclude that we had it right back in January when we first came out for Sasse.

We said then that we were backing Ben Sasse because he would fight the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. 

From what we’ve seen of the negative campaigns run by his Ruling Class opponents, career politician Shane Osborn and liberal Republican banker Sid Dinsdale, the Ruling Class must believe Ben Sasse when he says he is going to fight for the people of Nebraska and the values and interests of “flyover country.”

When Ben Sasse announced his Senate bid he told Breitbart’s Alexander Marlow, "As someone who's not a career politician, I wanted to introduce myself to Nebraskans in a way that would explain what this campaign is about… DC is a sick, dysfunctional place. I've seen it up close. We're going to lose our country if we don't act quickly."

Ben Sasse is whip-smart and he understands that one of the reasons why Obamanomics is destroying the American economy is what economists call “rent-seeking” by Washington’s Ruling Class — political insiders who are devoted to tapping into the economic value created by someone else, rather than creating new value.

Sasse is the only candidate in the Nebraska GOP Senate race who has talked about breaking the “Iron Triangle” of Washington’s rent-seeking bureaucrats, lobbyists, and politicians and how that must be a priority if we are to save what is left of American exceptionalism. 

Sometimes who is against a candidate tells you more about the candidate than who is for them – and surrogates for the ultimate player in Washington’s “Iron Triangle,” establishment Republican Senator Mitch McConnell just put $100,000 into negative ads against Ben Sasse.

We strongly encourage our friends in Nebraska to vote for Ben Sasse, president of Midland University, in next week’s May 13 Republican primary. In addition to CHQ Sasse has been endorsed by The Club for Growth and a host of other conservative leaders and organizations, including:

Matt Hoskins: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, SENATE CONSERVATIVES FUND

Matt Kibbe: PRESIDENT, FREEDOMWORKS

Connie Mackey: PRESIDENT, FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL ACTION PAC

Brian Burch: PRESIDENT OF CATHOLICVOTE.ORG 

Nebraskans United for Life

Nebraska Right to Life

Tim Macy: VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA

Mark Levin: CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER AND A NATIONALLY SYNDICATED BROADCASTE 

Erick Erickson: REDSTATE.COM 

Mike Lee: UNITED STATES SENATOR
