Benjamin "Ben" Sasse (born February 22, 1972) is the junior Unites States Senator from Nebraska. He is a member of the Republican Party, and was elected in November 2014. Although he aligns with the Tea Party Movement at times, he aligns with liberals at others. He refused to endorse Republican Donald Trump for U.S. president even after he became the GOP nominee, and he spoke highly of liberal Representative John Lewis.
Sasse serves on the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; the Joint Economic Committee; and the Special Committee on Aging.
