Longshot GOP U.S. House candidate from Hawaii breaks wrist

By Associated Press

A longshot Republican candidate for a U.S. House seat in Hawaii says he’s staying in the race even after a nasty 14-foot fall from a ladder.

Kawika Crowley told The Associated Press on Thursday that he broke his left wrist and badly sprained his right ankle Friday night while doing a drywall job at a car dealership in Kaneohe.

Crowley is homeless but works as a handyman and lives in his van.

Crowley won the Republican nomination to run against former Honolulu councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat. Crowley isn’t expected to win and he’s not getting backing from his party.

Crowley says he went back to finish the job the night after the fall because he needed the money.

He says he’s not letting up on his campaign.
