Herseth Sandlin, Tom Daschle and sustainable food production

Stephanie Herseth Sandlin told me Wednesday she hopes to travel to Africa to promote sustainable food production.

SHS is a fan of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), which seeks to help the people of the continent provide for themselves. She said in her new role as a lawyer for a Washington, D.C., law firm, she can have an impact on issues she cares about and this is one of them.

Another former South Dakota Democratic member of Congress, Tom Daschle, is also trying to help Africa learn how to feed itself. SHS and Daschle are admirers of George McGovern, the former congressman and senator who has made feeding hungry people a lifelong goal.

Daschle wrote a column on the topic:
