Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) will announce his intention to resign from Senate on Wednesday. Sasse is stepping down in order to accept a position at an academic institution, a local outlet reports.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the University of Florida considers Sasse to be "the lone finalist to be the school's next president."



The process "could take a bit," according to KFAB reporter Ian Swanson. "While the process could take a bit, the announcements are expected 'imminently.'"

"I want to be clear here: this is a process that will take time, so the resignation will not take effect today. The process will be announced today, and I am told to expect the resignation to actually be made official in December," Swanson said in a tweet.



Sasse's resignation is the latest in a list of changes to Nebraska politics, which started this past summer.

"The Nebraska governor would then appoint a replacement for Sasse under state law. The second-term Sasse made a name for himself as a consistent Trump critic in Congress as well as a reliable conservative vote," Politico reports.

The Senate is currently evenly split along party lines, with Vice President Kamala Harris having the tie-breaking vote.
