Washington, DC (KELO-AM) South Dakota Senator John Thune (R) this week quietly attended a fundraiser by party leaders to support embattled Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran. Cochran is in the fight of his political life against Tea Party favorite, Chris McDaniel.

Many long-serving Republican senators were at the fundraiser, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Reportedly, Thune evaded comment after the fundraiser, saying he would be late for the next event, before hopping into a car.
