Hit ‘em up, move ‘em on, get nation’s Capitol to Nebraska, U.S. Senate candidate says

Nebraska Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse wants to the move the nation’s Capitol to his home state, though he hasn’t picked a capital city.

It’s a spoof, of course, but a well-produced spoof that is catching the attention of the Internet crowd.

Casting himself as a Washington, D.C., outsider not beholden to insider political pressure, Sasse suggests in the 5-minute video moving the moving the Capitol — the actual building — using what appears to be a super-sized big rig and trailer. Doing that, he says, would insulate lawmakers from the specials interests and powerful lobbyists inside the Beltway while giving the political class a taste of the Cornhusker State’s conservative values.
