Tim Krepp, an independent hoping to challenge Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton , D-D.C., is embracing his facial hair — the type above his eyes.

At Eastern Market over the weekend, Krepp supporters gathering signatures for the Hill East denizen/veteran tour guide sported T-shirts emblazoned with "Tim Krepp Congress 2014." A dialogue balloon above "Tim" features one of Krepp's defining features, his caterpillar-like eyebrows. Another dialogue balloon under "2014" states, "Seriously? Seriously!"  

"We'll see how far wit can take us," signature-gatherer Brian Pate said.
