Two Days, Five Counties and $10,000

At about 8pm last night Todd Hollenbach Jr., Judge Hollenbach and Mike Karem loaded up the Todd Squad van and headed back to Louisville after two very good days in Western Kentucky. State Senator Joey Pendleton and Todd Jr. campaigned Monday morning in Todd County. Todd campaigned with local officials and farming leaders, did interviews and met with the local Christian raido station.

Hollenbach had lunch with an estimated 75 supporters at a luncheon in downtown Hopkinsville before heading to Trigg County with State Rep. John Tilley to campaign. Former Cadiz Mayor, Jim Ricks, met with Todd at his music store in Downtown Cadiz. After meeting with the local media Todd traveled back to Hopkinsville to speak to a capacity crowd at the Democrat Woman's Club. The evening was not all business. After the Dinner, everyone went to the house of local Hopkinsville businessman, Wilson Sisk, to watch Monday Night Football. Sisk who owns Sisk Auto Mall and Jon Wilkins hosted the Hollenbach entourage. Sisk is a key supporter of Rep. John Tilley. After the first half eveyone headed out to the "Rutland Ranch" for the evening.

Murray State University President, Randy Dunn met Todd on Tuesday to discuss the importance of financial literacy. President Dunn and Todd shared ideas and concepts for educating students and the public on financial matters. After a day of interviews in Calloway and Marshall County, a fundraiser was put on by Judge Mike Miller and Steve Hamrick at the Benton Golf and Country Club.

A great two days for the Hollenbach campaign whereas Hollenbach was able to garner the front page of the Kentucky New Era, recorded a segment for a local TV-43 show, and paritipated in 9 media interviews. Hollenbach raised an estimated $10,000 in his two days in 5 counties, not to mention that he followed through with his promise to spend time in Todd County since no other candidates have campaigned there. I smell another big victory for Todd Hollenbach in Western Kentucky.
