GOP Establishment Gets Their Wish: Allen West Concedes
The GOP Establishment was declared the winner in Florida’s 18th Congressional District this morning when Representative Allen West conceded in his bid for re-election.
Rep. Allen West on Tuesday conceded in his re-election effort in Florida’s 18th Congressional District, but suggested he will still be active in politics or public office.
The Tea Party favorite and first-term congressman made the statement Tuesday, following two weeks of court battles and ballot recounts in his race against Democratic challenger and political newcomer Patrick Murphy.
“Leaders don’t need a title to be able to lead,” West told Fox News. “I will continue to be servant of this nation.”
The GOP Establishment in Florida, with the approval of the national Stupid Party, redrew the Congressional Districts and forced Mr. West to run in a more Leftist district. They despised him and his TEA Party supporters and used Gerrymandering to make it all the harder for the former hero Colonel to run and win.
Congratulations GOP Establishment!
The camel’s back is most definitely broken.
The death warrant is signed.
As Smitty writes:
My guess is that, by the time Allen West is done, they’ll realize that retaining his seat would have been easier on the Left.
They’ll realize it good and hard.
As for Mr. West:
“Right now, God knows the plan for my life,” West told Fox. “The most important thing is to enjoy Thanksgiving. My concerns right now are to be with family.
I’ll be calling up God right away to talk to Him about this.
