A week from tonight, Senator John Thune will be attending a fundraiser set up to funnel money into his political action committee. Thune’s political action committee is called the Heartland Values PAC.
Heartland values? Where is this Heartland?
The Sunlight Foundation has documentation on Heartland Values PAC fundraisers from the last four years. 68.4 percent of those fundraisers for Thune have been in Washington D.C. Two have been in Naples, Florida. One has been in New York City.
Though Senator John Thune is supposed to be representing South Dakota in the Senate, only one fundraiser to support his Heartland Values PAC was held in South Dakota.
Are those Heartland values?
