The disclosure came in an annual report filed by Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) with the United States Senate this week.
One vulnerable Senate Democrat, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) paid for a $7,500 trip to Cancún, Mexico for another, Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), in February 2016, according to a report filed by Tester with the U.S. Senate this week.
Under Tester’s annual report, which the Senate posted online on Monday, Tester lists under “Travel” almost $7,500 in “Airfare, Lodging, [and] Meals” for him and his spouse, paid for by McCaskill.
Tester’s itinerary started in Great Falls, Montana, continued on to Cancún – a popular vacation spot for American tourists – and concluded in Washington, D.C.
McCaskill has called Tester one of her “best buds” and “besties” on Twitter before:
Sitting between my best buds. Webb and Tester. I don't even feel the cold cause I'm so excited.
