U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement as Nebraskans are preparing to help Jonathan Rempel of Henderson finish harvesting his crops. Last week, a suspicious early morning fire destroyed multiple pieces of farm equipment, including a combine that had two flags supporting President Donald Trump. The investigation is ongoing.

"As Americans, we should be able to say this clearly: acts of violence or vandalism towards political opponents are abhorrent. We’re rooting for the Rempel family, and Nebraskans are going to show the country what America is really all about. Friends, family, and neighbors are going to come together and help the Rempel family finish the harvest."
