As he finished up his victory speech Tuesday night, congressional hopeful Curt Clawson re-issued a challenge first made to President Obama in a campaign ad: Let’s meet on the basketball court.

“I am going to challenge you on spending. I am going to challenge you on economic growth,” said Clawson, a former Purdue University basketball player who won the GOP nomination for a vacant U.S. House seat in Florida.

“But first, I am going to challenge you on the basketball court. It’s time to man up and accept the 3-point challenge. My house or yours?”

We doubt Obama will take Clawson up on his offer, but the candidate is likely to make good on his vow to “challenge” the president on policy issues if not basketball prowess.
