WASHINGTON, DC - Senator Rand Paul released a statement this afternoon announcing his endorsement of Curt Clawson for Florida's 19th Congressional District.

Clawson is one of four Republicans looking to replace Trey Radel in Congress.

Paul said Clawson will restore fiscal stability and common sense government.

The special primary to fill that District 19 seat is next Tuesday.
