Update: Lou Holtz Won’t Run for Congressional Seat in Florida

Filed under: Politics — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:54

Go to fullsize imageFormer Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz says he doesn’t plan to run for Congress. “I’m working for ESPN. I don’t want to run for Congress,” Holtz told WNDU-TV of South Bend on Wednesday at a golf outing in nearby Bridgman, Mich. “All I’m going to do is fulfill the commitment to ESPN. I’m prepared for it and then we’ll go from there.” A GOP strategist said Tuesday that Holtz was considering running as a Republican for the central Florida congressional seat held by Democrat Rep. Suzanne Kosmas. Holtz has never run for office. He has worked as an analyst at ESPN since retiring from his last coaching stint at South Carolina at the end of the 2004 season. This is good news–Suzanne Kosmas has shown to be a tremendous Congressional Representative who is working hard for progressive change this country desperately needs. We need to keep moving forward and not elect conservative Republican celebrities to political office.
