Here is the brief biographical information on Senator Sasse as listed in the Congressional Directory: "SASSE, Benjamin Eric, a Senator from Nebraska; born in Plainview, Pierce County, Nebr., February 22, 1972; B.A., Harvard University, 1994; M.A., St. John’s College, Annapolis, Md., 1998; Ph.D., Yale University, 2004; management consultant; university professor; chief of staff to U.S. Representative Jeff Fortenberry; counselor to the secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; assistant secretary for planning and evaluation, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; president of Midland University, Fremont, Nebr.; elected as a Republican to the United States Senate in 2014 for the term ending January 3, 2021."
Here are some notes from my August 1, 2016 blog page when the senator spoke at a public meeting here in Seward: "This was my first opportunity to see him, and I was very favorably
impressed. He received some publicity during the past few months for his
reluctance to support any of the Republican Candidates for President.
One of the attendees at this mornings meeting challenged him on his
position of not supporting the Party's Nominee, and he made it clear
that he was more concerned with working on the Country's problems than
supporting any candidate."
