Nebraska state Sen. John McCollister (R) tweeted out a warning Sunday that his party is “enabling white supremacy” and that he “refuses to be someone who said nothing.”

According to the Omaha World-Herald, McCollister has bucked his party before, introducing bills to expand Medicaid coverage and food stamp eligibility and asking the Attorney General to cease an effort to end DACA.

Correction: This post originally referred to McCollister as a state representative.
