As negative political advertising blankets American media with just a week before Election Day, Hawaii News Now discovered a story about two men running for the same office who have formed a friendship after one of them faced a difficult illness during the campaign.

Sam Kong’s Republican opponent, minister Robert Helsham, “visited Kong in the hospital five times, played guitar and sang for him, and prayed with him.”

“When he leaves, man, I’m almost in tears,” Kong told KFVE reporter Keoki Kerr. “Just so touched by his heart, his generosity, just so awesome.”
