State Senator Bruce “Highspeed” Holland has once again been caught for going to fast, although this time Holland wasn’t even in a car.
Holland faces a stiff challenge in the Republican primary from former State Rep. Rick Green. Last week, Green released the news that he had received the endorsements of former Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt and State Senator Ruth Whitaker in his race for the State Senate.
Not to be outdone on endorsements, Holland told The City Wire that he had been endorsed by Lt. Governor Mark Darr, along with various State Senate colleagues.
Once again, it turns out “Highspeed” Holland was going too fast.
When contacted by the The City Wire, Darr’s office said that indeed the Lt. Governor had not endorsed Holland. Oops.
Once informed that Darr hadn’t endorsed him, Holland said, “I can’t remember exactly what was said between Michael (Tilley, The City Wire president and managing editor) and I on the phone, but I feel Lieutenant Governor Darr has done a great job in his position, and he’s been supportive of me along with the caucus. In fact, two weeks ago, the lieutenant governor hosted a fundraiser for me, so he’s been a great source of support for my campaign.”
Sarah Beth Lowe, communications director for Darr, said the Lt. Governor had attended fundraisers for both Rick Green and Holland and that he looked forward to serving with the eventual District 9 winner.
Once again – oops.
If only Holland would just slow down, and look where’s going, he wouldn’t keep being pulled over for his mistakes.
