DiGeronimo for Congress: The Same, But Different

Nathan Eagle/Honolulu Civil Beat

Matt DiGeronimo embodies some of the basic tenets of today's traditional Republican. He's a retired Navy officer, devout Christian and small business owner.

But the 2nd Congressional District candidate also loves Pink Floyd, worries about sustainability and has his own thoughts on gay marriage.

He doesn't see why he can't have these multiple dimensions and win the open seat in November to represent rural Oahu and the Neighbor Islands. So despite being drafted by state GOP leaders, DiGeronimo is running a "stealthy campaign" that may buck their playbook a bit.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
