    FreedomWorks PAC Withdraws Osborn Support, Endorses Ben Sasse in Nebraska Senate Race

    Originally Published in FreedomWorks PAC on 3/28/14.

    Washington, DC- After input from FreedomWorks PAC activists across the state of Nebraska, FreedomWorks PAC made the decision to rescind its support of Shane Osborn and endorse Ben Sasse as the most consistently conservative candidate in the Nebraska Senate race.

    FreedomWorks PAC President Matt Kibbe commented:

    “Both Osborn and Sasse are great people, and this was not a decision taken lightly. The question at the heart of this decision is, who would caucus with the Freedom Caucus, and who would fall in line with the establishment?”

    “At this point, it is clear that Shane Osborn formed allegiances with Mitch McConnell and the K Street lobbying class. For us, that progression away from the grassroots has tipped the balance. FreedomWorks PAC has a responsibility to endorse the most reliable candidate for liberty, and after following the evolution of this primary, it’s clear that Ben Sasse is the man for the job.”

    FreedomWorks PAC empowers activists by endorsing free-market candidates and providing the background research and analysis to help elect a new generation of principled, freedom-minded politicians to office.
