Noted #NeverTrump enthusiast and Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse tweeted Friday that he and his wife cast their ballots early for Ted Cruz.

“Happy to report that Melissa and I just early-voted for @tedcruz to #StopTrump,” Sasse wrote, adding, “Time for conservatives to unite here in winner-take-all Nebr[aska].”

Sasse, who has not formally endorsed his Texas Senate colleague for the Republican nomination, has been vocal for months about his opposition to Donald Trump’s candidacy.

“My current answer for who I would support in a hypothetical matchup between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton is: Neither of them,” he wrote in a Feb. 29 Facebook post. “I sincerely hope we select one of the other GOP candidates, but if Donald Trump ends up as the GOP nominee, conservatives will need to find a third option.”

Before and since making that declaration, Sasse tweeted frequently about his disdain on his personal Twitter account.
