Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), who was an outspoken critic of Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election cycle, on Wednesday morning congratulated Trump on his victory and signaled readiness to work with the President-elect.

“On Tuesday, America demanded disruption. My family and I congratulate President-Elect Trump on his decisive victory, and we pray that he will lead wisely and faithfully keep his oath to a Constitution of limited government,” Sasse said in a statement. “Starting today, I will do everything in my power to hold the President to his promises: to fight for an ethics reform package that upends cronyism and enacts term limits; to lead on repealing and replacing ObamaCare; and to nominate judges who reject law-making by unelected courts. Melissa and I wish the new First Family the best in the coming transition.”
