Animosity Grows in 19th Congressional District Election Campaigns

Mar 26, 2014

Last month on “Gulf Coast Live!” we discussed the special election race for Florida’s 19th Congressional District seat and the candidates looking to replace Trey Radel in Congress.  Despite early talk of a clean campaign, attack ads from the campaigns of state Senator Lizebeth Benacquisto, former CEO Curt Clawson, and former state Rep. Paige Kreegel have been heating up.

Political Action Committees are also trying to sway voters with their own ads before the April 22 primary election.  We’ll explore this evolving campaign and analyze ads to separate fact from fiction.
