The senator for Nebraska, Ben Sasse, said that he will not support Donald Trump in the 2016 US Election.
He said that he is saddened and frustrated and that he will seek for option three if Trump emerges victorious in the Republican nomination.
Trump has posed a colorful campaign in which he has won three of the four voting states. This has left the Republican divided.
The billionaire is on the lead in almost all the states.
The “Super Tuesday” votes graduates the presidential race to the national level and is regarded as a sink-or-swim scenario for the candidates.
Senator Sasse said that if turns out that its Donald Trump who wins the republican nominee, he would be compelled to seek for a candidate; someone who is a Constitutionalist and has a conservative option. He made the statements in an open letter posted on Facebook.
He continued that the relentless efforts by Trump are to see Americans divided and the glorious nation torn down.
Mr. Sasse has not yet endorsed any candidate that rivals Mr. Trump. But he has campaigned for Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Donald Trump has been seen to cause division within the Republican camp even as he promises to build a wall along the US-Mexico border as well as stop all immigration by Muslims that have the intention of coming to the US.
Most of his supporters say that they are attracted by his authenticity and hold of the opinion that his success in business depicts him as being capable of transforming the US economy. He would also be able to secure the American borders.
When the former Republican candidate Christie Chris and New Jersey Governor endorsed him, Trump is set on the right path in clinching the Republican nomination. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Senator, became the first sitting senator to endorse Mr. Trump.
