LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Republican lawmaker in Nebraska wants to redefine what the public thinks of when they hear the word “republican.”

Sen. John McCollister, of Omaha, unveiled a new website dubbed “Republican Redefined.” McCollister has criticized President Donald Trump, and accused the GOP of enabling racism, launched the new website to try to change the party’s current views on unions, guns and climate change.

The website lays out what McCollister describes as conservative arguments for public education, prison reform and a strong social safety net, among other issues.

It also highlights Nebraska’s one-house, officially nonpartisan Legislature and the senator who fought to create it.
