*ANOTHER MAJOR FLORIDA NEWSPAPER PRAISES WELDON*
Orlando, FL – In an editorial today the Naples Daily News reviewed the Primary race for U.S. Senate as “Perhaps the biggest Senate race out there.” While the paper did not officially endorse, they made their preference for one candidate absolutely clear.
“Dr. David Weldon of Melbourne is a bright, extremely well-informed and experienced candidate who has a strong conservative vision for the future,” they said.
“After interviewing Weldon, a former U.S. House member who term-limited himself out of office four years ago, we see him as well-rounded and thoughtful on the key issues of health care, fiscal policy, economic development, the national defense, and aerospace,” said the Scripps Newspaper Group writers. “Weldon is effectively passionate — a veteran of getting things done with the help of other people in this community and Congress. He sees the big picture and knows that the economy, jobs and health-care policy come together.”
The editors acknowledged Connie Mack, IV has refused to debate Weldon, but given Weldon’s knowledge of the issues that’s understandable; ” Now we better understand why U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV, R-Fort Myers, refuses to debate his opponent for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate . . . frontrunners in polls tend to avoid debates for fear of stumbling — saying something ill-advised that could be used against them.”
The story concludes, “That is the contest, with a national focus and big implications. . .”
Earlier this month, the Tampa Bay Times recommended Weldon to Republican Primary voters.
