Curt Clawson Hits Right Tone, Not Just for SWFL but the Nation

On April 22, in a special primary election in Southwest Florida, Republican voters selected Curt Clawson as their nominee for the June 24th special election for the United States Congress.  The campaign waged against Clawson had been perhaps among the most negative that the country has seen.  His business record was falsely portrayed, and a false innuendo of the most salacious and reprehensible association that could be imagined was given legs by a local media outlet and latched onto by his opponents.

Despite the nature of the attacks (which during the campaign he handled with dignity and courage), Clawson’s speech when the election returns confirmed his nomination was a model for bringing together, not just Southwest Florida, but the nation.  Watch and share:

Curt Clawson Strikes Right Tone, Not Just for SWFL, but for the Nation

It’s the kind of message that should permeate our politics, regardless of one’s persuasion. We should be able to disagree without being disagreeable.
