      His father was very active building and financing the building of homes in and around Dane County, in the 1980s on into the 1990s I believe.  I still can visualize the Don Hovde signs.

      My impression is Hovde is more likely to appeal to real estate and finance interests rather than geographical neighborhoods in the state.  So he might drain contributions from Neumann as a result.  

      But Hovde is a political unknown to even me.  I know more about the father than the son unfortunately.  So I hesitate to guess what wing of the GOP Hovde might appeal to ideologically, though Chamber of Commerce conservative would be my best guess.

      As Hovde gets more serious about running i will focus on pinning down what exactly motivates him, other than he wants it and he is rich.
