It is not "renting out campaign space." It is giving Dwight Holton a downtown office, phones, meeting rooms, reception, and probably parking space(s) for free for 4 months prior to the primary election, without reporting it as a campaign contribution. Such space and amenities is worth at least $1000 per month.
