Thune Opposing Bolton as BRAC Payback

via Outside the Beltway

Senator John Thune, who promised during his campaign against then-Minority Leader Tom Daschle that electing him would save Ellsworth Air Force Base, is opposing John Bolton's nomination as UN Ambassador in a bizarre protest against that base's inclusion on the BRAC list.

Thune now says he'll oppose Bolton for U.N. (AP)

As James Joyner says, this is surprising to have a junior senator bucking the administration's man. I wish his protest though was founded on the idea that Bolton is a terrible choice to go to the UN instead of a power play.
