GOP Senator Slams Texas AG’s Lawsuit As “PR Stunt”

The Washington Examiner reports:

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse on Thursday slammed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s election challenge pending at the Supreme Court, predicting that the court would dismiss it. “I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away,” Sasse told the Washington Examiner.

Sasse added that, to him, it looked like Paxton filed a “PR stunt rather than a lawsuit,” in an attempt to gain “a pardon” from President Trump. Paxton is currently the subject of an FBI investigation for illegally using the power of his office to benefit Austin real estate developer Nate Paul.

Trump attacked Sasse earlier this week.
