John Thune to Hollywood

Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), a 2012 presidential hopeful, will accept the American Spirit Award from an creative industry org at the Beverly Hills Hotel on March 28.

Thune will be honored along with Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Debbie Allen at the event, sponsored by the Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors.

The org honors the lawmakers and entertainment activists for their support of the creative community.

Last year's honorees were House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.).
