‘America Already Has One Post-Constitutional Party; We Don’t Need Another’

Nebraska GOP Senator Ben Sasse is making a quasi-endorsement, or maybe it is better described as an anti-endorsement. Sasse will appear with Marco Rubio, with Ted Cruz, and possibly other constitutional candidates. Although Sasse has not endorsed any candidate, he has strongly questioned GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

“We are in a moment of constitutional crisis. America already has one post-constitutional party; we don’t need another,” said Sasse. “We have a president who does not believe in executive restraint; we do not need another. I am not endorsing any candidate; I am urging conservatives to hold every candidate accountable to keeping their word so that we uphold the Constitution’s system of checks and balances.”

“I’m pro-Constitution and if that makes me anti-Trump, that’s Mr. Trump’s problem,” Sasse concludes.
