The Nebraska GOP had some harsh words Monday for state Sen. John McCollister (R) who accused his party of ” enabling white supremacy.”

McCollister said in a Sunday Twitter thread that he “refuses to be someone who said nothing,” urging his colleagues to “take a stand.”

The lawmaker has a history of bucking his party on issues like DACA reform and food stamps.
