Chairman’s Note: Did you have an opportunity to see Senator John Thune speak at the Republican National Convention yesterday? According to the Washington Post, you didn’t miss much. But if you did, you heard Senator Thune peddle a bold faced, debunked lie about the Obama administration and family farms – a lie Congresswoman Noem likes to repeat as well. For peddling this lie, the Pulitzer prize winning Politifact gave Senator Thune the inglorious “Pants on Fire” distinction. Congratulations, Senator.
