Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasee called Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin called Ben Sasse the “sexiest man in town” as he was walking out of the Capitol on Wednesday.

In a video posted by CBS News reporter Alan He, Sasse told NBC reporter Julie Tsirkin that “Joe’s the sexiest man in town” as he appeared to be walking to his car with a staffer outside of the Capitol building. Sasse was walking into the Capitol building and was behind the camera.
