Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement on Friday’s U.S. Senate Debate at NET in Lincoln:
“It is nice to see Sen. Ben Sasse grace Nebraskans with his presence in our state — just in time to mock Democratic values and voters,” Kleeb said. “A predictable playbook from Trump’s Republican Party these days. We all look forward to a time when our leaders get back to the basics — treating veterans with respect, valuing family farmers over corporate interests, schools that are open, healthcare that doesn’t bankrupt us and a clean environment.”
Sasse debated Chris Janicek, who the NDP withdrew support for after he sexually harassed a staff member and refused to withdraw his candidacy as the Democratic nominee.
NDP officials asked Janicek to withdraw from the senate race after he sexually harassed a staff member with explicit text messages asking staff to donate money so Chris could hire men to perform violent sex on a female staff member.
The NDP will announce a write-in candidate next week.
