Didn’t the GOP destroy his district?
In before Obama complains about the mess he inherited!
Either way he was going to be in a hotly contested race....not liking the way we got kicked around last night. Demonrats are swimming in their giddyness.
Be careful what you wish for....higher unemployment and more taxes on the way for you.
Opps, wrong thread. The world really is upside down today.
Yup. From January:
This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romneys spokemen.
Why, yes, they certainly did. Wasserman-Schultz put her little puppet up against West, with the help of the GOP, she succeeded.
That was the other knife to the gut last night.
The world has gone mad.
Mia Love lost her race also(Utah). She was up by double digits 2 days ago.
Unfortunate. I really liked Col. West. I wish him well wherever he goes and whatever he does.
Maybe if the US becomes a republic again, he can run for President.
I don't see any cheering on FR, so I assume she was.
Being that her mug was on the news this morning, my guess is she’s still in.
Wow. Just wow. Very sad about West.
Meh. His voting record never matched his rhetoric anyway..
And here everyone thought the GOP would back a conservative. The conservatives are nothing but an annoyance to the GOP, only getting in the way of them sucking up to the leftists to get a few table scraps. The GOP has sold their soul to the political devil, and they will now get the screwing they so richly deserve.
This was worse than the Romney loss, IMHO.
That is a heavy blow.
She won, roughly 63-36%
