‘Never Trumper’ Ben Sasse Goes to Iowa After Refusing to Rule Out 2020 Primary Challenge
Breitbart ^ | July 8, 2017 | Tony Lee

After refusing to rule out a potential 2020 primary challenge to President Donald Trump, “Never Trump” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) spoke to about 200 Republicans in Story County, Iowa on Friday evening. Sasse’s excuse was that he was in Iowa because he lost a college football bet and his kids were participating in a triathlon this weekend in the state..

In an interview before his Iowa trip, the insufferable and sanctimonious Sasse would not rule out a potential 2020 presidential run. When CNN asked about his potential presidential ambitions on Sunday, Sasse punted in a way that would have made the late Sam Foltz proud.

According to a McClatchy report, though, Trump still “remains so strong in conservative corners of Trump-friendly states, including Iowa, that party leaders, operatives and grassroots activists say there is no serious on-the-ground discussion of a 2020 challenge at this point.” Many who attended the dinner expressed similar sentiments to local Iowa reporters.

He’ll be lucky to stay out of the Happy House, much less stay in the Senate, if he SERIOUSLY thinks that he can challenge Trump in 2020.

come on. Won’t one of u ask when his 6 year senate seat is up? How about a protest candidate in the primary? He could pull a Nader and run 3rd party.

Sasse is an a--hole with a very big ego problem. His future is quite limited.

Run you POS. A snowball has a better chance of surviving in Hell than you have of getting the nomination.

Sasse was heralded as the quintessential republican. He has turned out to be nothing more than a quintessential pain in the sasse ass.
