Roby Brock provides some intel on Jim Holt's dual fund-raisers last night to explore a Republican race for U.S. Senate. Sounds like he raised less than $20,000, enough for a filing fee and some gas for the campaign van.
Holt is a half-full-glass kind of guy, however. He says on his Facebook page that the events were "a resounding success."
UPDATE: Photos from the higher dollar of the two events can be perused at this Facebook site.
