(RepublicanInformer.com)- The Republican Party appears to be finally standing up to the GOP establishment and anti-Trump politicians, with the Lincoln County Republican Party of Nebraska voting on Sunday to censure Senator Ben Sasse.
Sasse has been one of the most notorious Republican critics of President Donald Trump…up there with Utah Senator Mitt Romney.
All 32 members of the Lincoln County Republican Party voted to censure Sasse, according to local chairwoman Carol Friesen. As part of the resolution, Sasse is accused by party representatives of “dismissing the leigitmate concerns” about misconduct and fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
It also references the way Sasse has treated former President Donald Trump during his time in office, explaining how he didn’t “respect the high office of the President of the United States.”
And if that wasn’t enough, local Republicans said that Sasse made a number of statements that incited “radical proposals and retributions against law-abiding elected senators.” It was a reference to the attacks against Crux and Hawley from Democrats who called on the two Republican senators to resign from their positions for questioning the integrity of the presidential election.
Both Hawley and Cruz committed to objecting to some Electoral College votes, expressing their desire to trigger a ten-day debate in the Senate where evidence of fraud and misconduct could be shown.
Senator Sasse told NPR that Senator Hawley was a “dumb ass” for objecting to the Electoral College votes, something that Democrats have done in many elections in the past.
“This was a stunt,” Sasse said. “It was a terrible, terrible idea. And you don’t lie to the American people, and that’s what’s been going on.”
Sasse recently published a video addressing the vote to censure him, claiming that “personality cults aren’t conservative.”

“Conspiracy theories aren’t conservative,” he said. “Lying that an election has been stolen isn’t conservative. Acting like politics is a religion isn’t conservative.”
Former President Donald Trump is reportedly considering a new rally tour to help campaigns to primary Senators and Representatives who challenged his MAGA agenda, and Sasse could be at the top of the list.
The former president previously described Sasse as “the least effective of our 53 Republican Senators, and a person who truly doesn’t have what it takes to be great.”
