STUART — Republican congressional candidate Carl Domino wants voters to think of seven-time NBA All-Star and unrestricted free agent Kevin Durant when they choose a candidate in the six-candidate GOP primary on Aug. 30.
With a career as a nationally known investment manager, Navy service in Vietnam and eight years of experience in the Florida state House, Domino says his resumé stands out among the Republicans running for the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast District 18 congressional seat.
The six Republicans agree on most issues. At a candidate forum Monday night, Domino likened the election to a job interview with several candidates who make similar presentations.
“How do you decide which one you’re going to hire? Well it’s really easy — who’s done the things already they said they’re going to? Are you going to hire Kevin Durant that’s made 27 points a game, or some guy that’s a rookie that’s made no points a game, or 2. I’ve done the things that we’re all talking about,” Domino said.
Durant has averaged 27.4 points per game in his nine-year NBA career.
