Politically Speaking: Thune hops river for ag event with Harkin
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
The two-hour field hearing of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee is underway here in Sioux City on the topic of biofuels development. U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, set up the hearing and invited U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D. As the event began at Western Iowa Tech Community College, Harkin thanked Thune for hopping across the river to take part. He also thanked his colleague from across the partisan aisle for work on creating a new Farm Bill last year. I went to see the two Senators appearing together, which has never happened in Siouxland to my knowledge. They're appearing at the same site as Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King picked eight days ago in holding his city town hall meeting.
