Curing the dysfunction and acrimony that plague Washington is simple enough, one Senate candidate says, just move the Capitol to … Nebraska. Republican Senate candidate Ben Sasse of Nebraska threw out the idea in a television spot aired during weekend football games. While the Midland University president and former Bush official says he doesn’t really think the idea will stick, he told Breitbart News that the “thought experiment” is meant to represent the average American’s frustration with Washington, suggesting that if you can’t put enough Nebraska into Washingon, maybe it’s time to move Washington to Nebraska.
