Republican Rep. Allen West vowed Friday to keep fighting for a partial recount in his re-election race, after a Florida judge denied his request to revisit the count that showed Democrat Patrick Murphy winning.
Attorneys for the Tea Party-backed Florida congressman, who was elected in the 2010 Republican wave, argued that all 37,000 ballots cast during early voting in St. Lucie County should be recounted.
But after a judge turned him down, West blasted Murphy's "army of lawyers" and made clear he was not conceding the race.
"While we respect the court's decision, we remain concerned the voters in St. Lucie County will not be able to have confidence in the integrity of the electoral process and their right to a fair election, and will continue to pursue all legal options to ensure they do," West said, citing the "many discrepancies" with the votes.

I agree. I am going to send West some money right now. We have to fight this.
We need to keep encouraging Allen West to FIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!!!Thank GOD for the TEA PARTY!
Unlike many, if not most of the republicans, there is no coward within that man.
Having worked as a GOP 'observer' in Los Angeles county elections, I know all too well how corrupt the Demonrat majority are that run such facilities.
I personally caught, and pointed out to the Registrar Recorder herself, car and truckloads of fraudulent ballots being smuggled into that facility. She checked them and very quickly impounded the ballots - which were found to be indeed fraudulent.
Any FReeper that really cares about clean elections should volunteer to help stop voter fraud - they would be welcome with open arms - all they need to do is show up, and get a little bit of training. Just show up at your county GOP meetings, and get involved!
How does it feel to be the only one playing by the rules? LOL!
We very badly need to concentrate on getting corrupt judges OFF THE BENCH. There are ways and means!
He's among the best we have seen - I just hope that he has huge support from among those he has served so well.
Do what the commie ‘RATS do. Judge shop. There has got to be at least one honest judge out there somewhere.
Yeah... it feels VERY GOOD to be on the RIGHT side of the law.
NOT always - honest judges are few and far between in that area.
Romney/Ryan surrendered. Col. West fights. West in 2016!!!!!!
That did disappoint me about R&R....
I am not sure I am ready for West to run for president, but I do admire and respect him.
Cant the GOP legaly put up the money
to pay for a recount of the whole district.
Just pay and get it done with instead of
I agree, I had a hard time finding info on judges up for re-election, I ended up having to choose based on who appointed them.
*The speaker does not have to be an elected member of the house.
*The majority can control the vote for speaker, but that doesnt mean the speaker is guaranteed to be a republican.
*If the TP caucus would stick together on this they could force the RINOs to support West or chance giving the seat back to Pelosi.
* Its time to stand up!
There are numerous ways to contact Tea Party Caucus members. Are you creative enough to find one? Here's help
