% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One of the biggest voices in the Senate who stood in opposition to Donald Trump, Ben Sasse today has released a statement congratulating the President-Elect. Here’s his statement, which was also posted on his Facebook Page:

On Tuesday, America demanded disruption. My family and I congratulate President-Elect Trump on his decisive victory, and we pray that he will lead wisely and faithfully keep his oath to a Constitution of limited government. Starting today, I will do everything in my power to hold the President to his promises: to fight for an ethics reform package that upends cronyism and enacts term limits; to lead on repealing and replacing ObamaCare; and to nominate judges who reject law-making by unelected courts. Melissa and I wish the new First Family the best in the coming transition.

Sasse is one of the good guys in the Senate, and it’s good to see that he plans to hold Donald Trump accountable for the promises he made on the campaign trail. It’s something everyone, even those who supported Trump from the get-go, should be doing.

There’s a lot of talk about people like Sasse and others joining the Trump bandwagon, crawling back to the Republican Party, etc. after Trump’s win, but that simply isn’t the case. Sasse made a vow to hold the incoming president accountable, whether it was going to be a Democrat or a Republican. That kind of principled stand is the kind we need right now as the conservative movement looks for leaders.
