Sen. Sasses calls for a third-party candidate

Sen. Ben Sasse (Rep-Nebraska) is calling for a third-party presidential candidate claiming that neither of the two national front-runners “believe in limiting anything about DC’s power.”

Late Wednesday, Sen. Sasse wrote a letter on Facebook to those who wonder why the U.S. “can’t find a healthy leader who can take us forward together.”

“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,” Sasse wrote.

“Why shouldn’t America draft an honest leader who will focus on 70% solutions for the next four years? You know … and adult?” Sassy asked.

Sasse said the third-party candidate should be someone who hasn’t spent their life politics, “either buying politicians or being bought,” and he feels they should serve for just one term “as a care-taker problem-solver for this messy moment.”

“Although I’m one of the most conservative members of the Senate, I’m not interested in an ideological purity test, because even genuine consensus candidate would almost certainly be more conservative than either of the two dishonest liberals now leading the two national parties,” he said.

Sen. Sasse has already said that he would not support the presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in the general election.
