Lou Holtz, the former superstar coach of the Notre Dame football team, is doing his best to win one for the Gipper. He’s hosting a fundraising event Tuesday for Florida Republican Sandy Adams, who’s running for Congress in Florida’s 24th District against Democratic Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, Politico reports.
