He touted his charitable work, offering to debate anyone on the subject of who has done more to help those in need.

At one point, he even became emotional, according to The Associated Press, when he discussed his work volunteering at food kitchens, providing scholarships to students and starting a foundation that builds homeless shelters.

“I’ve been more involved than probably 99.9% of Americans, not just with money, but with my own personal efforts helping those that are disadvantaged,” Hovde told the gathering at the Madison Club.
