Send it to Congress

What puzzle constructor wouldn’t love Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE)? That’s the best political surname in crosswords since OBAMA.

But he voted for Ted Cruz for president last week and, on Twitter, defended his vote with this piece of wit: “Will @realDonaldTrump’s Secretary of State @dennisrodman be handling more than just our North Korean negotiations?”

Bad vote + bad joke = this week’s crossword. 20-Across can apply, with your permission, to both this puzzle’s title and the remainder of this year’s presidential campaign.

Solve the puzzle. Then click on one of the tabs below the grid to use Twitter or email and send the following message: “Dear Senator Sasse, I solved this puzzle — can you?”
