Thune, Other Midwestern Republicans Urge Extension of Ethanol Subsidies
by

Sen. John Thune is often touted as a possible wildcard Republican presidential candidate for 2012, but should he run, the South Dakota lawmaker will have to fight back charges that he’s part of the establshment. Thune voted for TARP and has requested and defended earmarks (though he did back the moratorium last month). Thune didn’t make his task easier this week by signing on to a letter to Senate Majority Harry Reid calling for an extension of ethanol tax subsidies. The letter was signed by 15 midwestern Senators, including five other Republicans (Chuck Grassley, Kit Bond, Sam Brownback, Mike Johanns and Mark Kirk).
