Democratic Congressional hopeful Rob Quist appeared in Billings Friday night, playing some tunes and raising money for a good cause.

Quist and his daughter Halladay performed "Just a Little Love," a benefit for the local Brain Injury Support Group at the Elks Lodge.

Quist is looking to replace Congressman Ryan Zinke in the House of Representatives.

Zinke is waiting for the Senate to confirm him to be the Secretary of the Interior.

Quist said he has visited 40 counties in the last month.

He said this is likely to be his last concert before he focuses on the House race.

"This might be one of the last musical events that I'll be doing for quite a while because if this political game goes forward, then of course I'll have to put my musical career on the back burner," Quist said.

"This isn't something I take lightly. I love my life as a performing artist. But right now I think it's just too important to not accept this challenge," he said.

This is Quist's first run at public office.

He is one of more than a dozen candidates among the Democrat and Republican parties who has expressed an interest in running for Montana's House seat.
