Damaged Redbud Tree

I have a Forest Pansy redbud. Wind damage has split about a 2-inch limb off main trunk. Limb is lying on the ground still attached to trunk, although there is about a 6-inch split on main trunk. Can I raise the branch some? And how to clamp it to the main trunk in an attempt to save the branch? What can I fill in the split with to prevent rot and further damage?
