Story highlights Following allegations, both the RNC and the NRSC withdrew their support for Moore
“It generally does not make any feeling. If you believe the victims, you don’t give money to the candidates,” Sasse said
Washington (CNN) Sen. Ben Sasse blasted the Republican National Committee for financially backing controversial Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, vowing that he would withdraw from fundraising for and donating to the National Republican Senate Committee if it chooses to support Moore’s campaign.
“It generally does not make any feeling. If you believe the victims, you don’t give money to the candidates,” the Nebraska Republican informed reporters on Wednesday after the RNC resumed its support for Moore.
“It’s pretty obvious these political celebrations stink. They are horrible. The American people aren’t impressed with these celebrations,” Sasse said. “They don’t really think they have their long term future interest in mind and we shouldn’t continue to keep pretending that there surely is some sort of binary choice that’s gonna correct this. More people should stand up and admit these choices are terrible.”
Prior to speaking with reporters, Sasse reacted to the news headlines earlier Wednesday morning on Twitter.
“This is a undesirable decision and very sad evening,” he wrote. “I really believe the women–and RNC previously does too. What’s changed? Or may be the party just indifferent?”
