A Batesville High School graduate now represents Southwest Florida in the United States Congress.

Curt Clawson (R-Bonita Springs, FL) claimed the election bid in Florida’s 19th Congressional District on Tuesday.

The former Bulldog and Purdue basketball star received 67 percent of the vote defeating Democrat April Freeman and Libertarian Ray Netherwood, according to the Florida Division of Elections website.

Family and friends will join Clawson Wednesday in Washington D.C. when he is sworn in to office.

The special election was held to replace former congressman Trey Radel who resigned after admitting to drug possession in January.

Clawson will serve the remainder of Radel’s term and is expected to run for election again in November.

The 1978 Batesville graduate is the former chief executive of an aluminum wheel company.
