SD Gov Claims Reba McEntire Will Headline Fundraiser, Reba Says She Knows Nothing About It And Won’t Do It

The Daily Beast reports:

Country superstar Reba McEntire was billed at one of the special guests at a fundraiser for South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem—but she says she isn’t attending and didn’t even know about it.

Noem’s spokesman, Ian Fury, said in a statement that the campaign had “written confirmation” that McEntire would be taking part.

“I’d add that the Governor is a huge fan of Reba,” he said. The $500-a-head event, a barbecue this Sunday, is to raise money for Noem’s re-election bid. The Republican has repeatedly denied she has designs on higher office.
