FreedomWorks on Friday withdrew its endorsement of Shane Osborn in Nebraska’s Republican Senate primary, saying he has turned his back on grassroots Republicans and is now tied to the GOP establishment, and announced they were instead backing Ben Sasse.
The move is a major blow to Mr. Osborn, whose campaign earlier this month told The Washington Times that FreedomWorks’ endorsement was the “important one in the race.”
Matt Kibbe, FreedomWorks PAC’s president, said both Mr. Sasse and Mr. Osborn are “great people” but said he had to decide which of them would be more likely to stand up to the GOP establishment.
“At this point, it is clear that Shane Osborn formed allegiances with Mitch McConnell and the K Street lobbying class,” Mr. Kibbe said Friday. “For us, that progression away from the grassroots has tipped the balance.”
