McConnell Statement on Senator Sasse

LOUISVILLE, KY – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement today regarding Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE):

“Senator Ben Sasse is a whip-smart and passionate leader. He has been a tremendous Senator, a dogged advocate for his fellow Nebraskans, and a valuable member of our Republican Conference. He is also a dedicated husband and father, a scholar, and a sought-after leader with interests and talents that span many fields. The University of Florida is a huge and important institution that would be lucky to have Ben at its helm. I am one of ninety-nine Senators who would be sorry to lose Ben as a colleague, but I trust my friend to pursue continued public service in the way that he deems best.”
