Southwest Floridians won’t endure another bitter congressional primary in 2014.

Four candidates submitted papers by Friday’s deadline to run for the congressional District 19 seat vacated by former Rep. Trey Radel earlier this year.

Bonita Springs Republican Curt Clawson; Cape Coral Democrat April Freeman; Ray Netherwood, a Libertarian Party of Florida candidate from Marco Island; and Timothy Rossano, a write-in candidate from Fort Myers, qualified to run.

None faces an opponent within their party, meaning the four will head directly to the November general election.

    Who is this moronic author? Where has she been the past three months, ending on May 22nd, the day of the GOP primary for the FOUR candidates for this office?? Of COURSE there is no pending primary. One primary per party per campaign.

    Send this dimbulb back to about fourth grade and have her start her education all over. She obviously is bereft of any knowledge of anything, otherwise. What a putz.

    BTW, if this really WAS posted May 2, she’s even more of an idiot that I first surmised. Benacquisto was running scared and accusing her opponents of everything save child abuse and Islamicism.
