WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) -- Sen. Ben Sasse has taken to Twitter to announce he and his wife Melissa have early voted for Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz as the best way to stop Donald Trump.

At 44, the Nebraska Republican freshman is one of the Senate's more prolific tweeters and has tangled with @realDonaldTrump on the medium.

Sasse told his almost 33,000 Twitter followers that "Melissa and I just early-voted for @tedcruz to #StopTrump."

It's hardly a ringing endorsement. Cruz is widely disliked in the Senate. Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee has endorsed Cruz, and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has offered a half-hearted endorsement.

Sasse added it's "time for conservatives to unite" in winner-take-all Nebraska, though he had to truncate Nebraska to N-e-b-r since he'd hit his 140-character limit.

Nebraska Republicans head to the polls on May 10 in a closed primary, meaning that only registered Republicans can cast their ballots. There are 36 delegates up for grabs in the Cornhusker State.

Nebraska Democrats went to caucus on March 5. There were 30 delegates at stake in that election. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won the state with more than 57 percent of the vote, compared with Hillary Clinton, who received about 42 percent.
