Here are two reformers from different parties and different backgrounds. In launching this website, we would like you to consider what they have to say.
Ben Sasse is the 46-year-old United States Senator from Nebraska. He’s a conservative Republican, born and raised in Nebraska, who earned a doctorate in American History from Yale University. He taught at the University of Texas, served as Assistant Secretary of U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and served as President of Midland University in Nebraska.
Senator Sasse is the author of two books: “The Vanishing American Adult” (2017) and “Them: Why We Hate Each Other – and How to Heal” (2018). He is the co-author of “Here We Stand! A Call from Confessing Evangelicals for a Modern Reformation”.
Sasse is married with three children, who are being homeschooled. He is an elder in the United Reformed Churches of North America and served on the board of trustees for Westminster Seminary in California.
He was elected to the United States Senate in 2014, defeating Democrat David Domina by a margin of 65% to 31%.
Elizabeth Warren is the 69-year-old United States Senator from Massachusetts. She is a progressive Democrat, born and raised in Oklahoma. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology, she got a law degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey, where she lived for a time with her first husband (the couple had two children but divorced in 1978). Senator Warren was a professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and Harvard Law School.
Senator Warren is the author of ten books, including “The Fragile Middle Class: Americans in Debt” (2001), “The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke” (2004), “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class” (2017). She was the advocate whose efforts directly led to the creation of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
She re-married but has kept her first husband’s last name. In addition to her two daughters, Senator Warren has several grandchildren.
She was elected to the United States Senate in 2012, defeating Republican Scott Brown by a margin of 54% to 46%.
