May 7, 2012
The convenience store chain that brought you the Slurpee wants to bring GOP Sen. Dick Lugar back to Washington. 7-11 gave $25,000 to a super PAC supporting Lugar called Hoosiers for Jobs, according to iWatch News. 7-Eleven spokeswoman Margaret Chabris told the website that Lugar "understands our issues" and "is popular among our Indiana franchisees."
