GOP Senator Ben Sasse Says He ‘Regularly’ Considers Leaving the Republican Party

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, said on Twitter Saturday that he “regularly” considers leaving the Republican Party. He made the remark in response to a tweet by a user who said she switched from being a member of the Democratic Party to having no affiliation.

“I switched my party from Democrat (to) no-party this week as I see that to be part of the solution. Have you considered following suit?” the user asked Sasse.

He responded, “yep — regularly consider it.”

Sasse is a frequent critic of President Trump. After Mr. Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, Sasse told “CBS This Morning” the president “isn’t leading.” In a press conference after the meeting with Putin, Mr. Trump publicly disagreed with the conclusions of American intelligence leaders that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.
