Pro-Growth Highlights:
  • Stood with fiscal conservatives in the fight against raising the debt limit.
  • His campaign for Senate is centered on expertise in health care and on repealing ObamaCare. Sasse has said that ““If it lives, America as we know it will die. If the idea of America is to live, it must be stopped.” 

Race Details: 
Ben Sasse brings an impressive resume to the Nebraksa Senate race. Before he was named president of Midland University at 37 years of age, Sasse went to both Harvard and Oxford and eventually received a Ph.D. in American History at Yale.  He was subsequently appointed to multiple administrative positions by President George W. Bush, the most recent being Assistant Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Sasse has been critical of Republican leadership, both on their unwillingness to support defunding ObamaCare and for not actively trying to end Congress’ unfair healthcare insurance subsidy. Sasse’s determination to fight for economic freedom is unmatched.  Which is why the Club’s PAC believes that, if elected, he will be an ally of other fiscal conservatives in the Senate and one of the most effective advocates against ObamaCare Club members have ever seen.
