Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska was one of a few Republicans in the Senate that this author had felt had a future, and had some validity.
Sasse is highly educated, with a Ph. D. in American History from Yale University, and having taught at the University of Texas, and being President of a small Lutheran university, Midland University, in his home state.
While disagreeing with Sasse on most issues, this author found him intriguing and a potential future Presidential candidate, but he has destroyed himself by refusing to criticize Donald Trump, until just now in a private conversation that was leaked.
Sasse is assured of his seat in Nebraska this November, with a splintered Democratic Party opposition, but he has lost all credibility, and this blogger is totally disillusioned that even a so called “principled conservative” has demonstrated that he has no real guts, courage, or moral and ethical beliefs!
Sasse will remain a Senator, but it seems unlikely that he has a future Presidential campaign due to his now strong criticism of Trump!
