BREAKING: Senator Ben Sasse to RESIGN from Senate

It’s just being reported that Senator Ben Sasse will soon announce his resignation from the US Senate to go be a professor or something.

Here’s the lowdown:

Sasse was just reelected in 2020 so he’s still got four years on his term. Depending on how Republicans do in November, his seat could become the focal point of who controls the US Senate, assuming there’s a special election.

I can say this, that Sasse won’t be missed by many of us out here who watched him vote to impeach Trump. But if his resignation ends with Democrat control of the Senate, that would be very bad.

It may be that the Republican Governor of Nebraska appoints his replacement, which would be the seat should be safe for a while. I’m not sure of the process but I guess we’ll find out soon.
