GOP Senate candidate Ben Sasse announced Thursday he raised more than $850,000 in the first quarter of the year, significantly more than his main challenger in the race.
Sasse made the announcement on Twitter.
Another Republican candidate, Shane Osborn, announced earlier this week he raised more than $550,000 in the first quarter of this year.
Osborn is a former state Treasurer and Navy pilot and his main rival is Sasse, who serves as president of Midland University.
Last week, conservative group FreedomWorks withdrew its endorsement of Osborn and said it would support Sasse instead.

My small donation, added to the many others, contributed to this. This is an excellent opportunity to get another true conservative (not a GOPe type or supported by the GOPe) Senator in to join Cruz and the others.
Karl Rove and Mitch McConnell are deeply saddened.
I’m pulling for Sasse. I don’t live in NE, but, I picked up from someone on here that Osborn is pretty conservative himself and that either would be acceptable. Am I wrong?
I don’t live in Nebraska either and based upon my limited knowledge Osborn appears to be reasonably conservative also. I place a great deal of faith in the vetting that the Senate Conservatives Fund is doing THIS cycle before they select and endorse a candidate. They’ve endorsed Sasse and, for me, that would tip the balance in Sasse’s favor.

Same here. SCF endorsements are game changers for me...........so far.
