CNSNews has a writeup:
Saying it’s time to “move ahead,” Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) announced Tuesday morning that he is conceding his House race to Democrat Patrick Murphy.
“I think that now is not the time to try to draw the process out,” West told “Fox & Friends.”
“We brought up some incredible voting irregulaties, not just in Saint Lucie County, but also some that we found in Palm Beach County, but now is not the time for the poeple down here in Congressional District 18 to be left in the lurch.”
West said “leaders don’t need a title in order to continue to lead and also to be a voice, and so I will continue to a citizen-servant of this great nation and do the things that help restore this constitutional Republic.”
If you incline the ear, you can hear the echo back in time from a CPAC 2013 speech where that patriot is going to raise him some roof.
@twitchyteam 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.
