Sen. Thune Meets With Bono While On African Tour

Sen. Thune Meets With Bono While On African Tour
MITCHELL, SD - Sen. John Thune isn't spending much of his month-long Senate recess relaxing in his home state of South Dakota.

Thune is part of a small congressional delegation in Africa to check on activities by the Department of Defense, Department of State and USAID.

Thune and the other delegates met with U2 singer and activist Bono during a stop in Ghana. Bono is one of the founders of ONE, an advocacy organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease.

The six senators and one representative arrived in Africa last Thursday and leave Friday.

While Thune's staff confirmed he is in Africa, they said they have been advised not to reveal his location or exact travel plans due to security reasons.
