While Donald Trump won big in his bid for the Republican nomination on Tuesday, a new movement aims to draft Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse as a third party candidate.

"Our mission is to gauge whether there is enough interest among conservatives to support and unite behind Sen. Sasse," the group Draft Sasse wrote Wednesday in a post on Twitter.



In response to Sasse issued the following statement to KMTV: "Absolutely not. I've got three little kids and the only job that I want - raising them and serving Nebraskans. No way."

He recently shared an open letter meant for Donald Trump supporters, telling them he could not support Trump as the Republican nominee.
