Florida Rep. Allen West the tea party pugilist and face of the class of House Republicans that stormed to power two years ago conceded Tuesday to 29-year-old construction executive Patrick Murphy in one of the nations highest-profile congressional races.
After two weeks of battle with St. Lucie County elections officials and a recount of early votes that wound up extending Murphys lead West acknowledged that he couldnt surmount his 1,904-vote, or 0.58 percent, deficit. That difference was just outside the 0.5 percent threshold to automatically trigger a recount of all votes.

” - - - I say he should be our next president! - - - “
AND SO SAY ALL OF US!
The 2016 Presidential Campaign has begun for Allen West!
“Im so mad, Im spitting nails. His seat was stolen, pure and simple and those who aided in this - well, all I can say is God help you! I dont have much feeling for my country any more. Sorry, I just dont.”
When there is open voter fraud, (Black Panthers, Acorn, Election officials ect.) and no steps are taken to correct and prosecute the country is gone......Bought my first weapon today.....I do not feel safe in this once GREAT AMERICA any longer......God Bless America and those who love her original CHRISTIAN values and respect her CONSTITUTION.....
A DUTY CALLS PING!
That's not going to happen as long as they have MSNBC and we have nothing to counter it. The republican party cannot even get a moderate elected against a pResident who has a worst record than Jimmy Carter.
Let's see a 24/7 TV news network version of CNS or Breitbart first, then maybe we'll have a chance.
We need a right wing news network to take the leftist pressure off fair and balanced, center Fox News.
We're probably going to be seeing a democrat in the WH after 2016. If not an Obama third term then someone else.
Allen West won 53,000 votes in in a county with this kind of registration.
That's pretty good especially since 10,000 of those who voted for him also voted for the Democratic Supervisor of Elections who won 10,000 more votes than Obama.
Someone needs to find some of these 10,000 people and ask them what they were thinking.
This is probably a good thing as Col. West will go onto bigger things and will now have a bigger platform.
Being a Congressman, he is one of 535, now he can do whatever he wants - look at the impact that Sarah Palin had after the loss in 2008.
I wonder if they’ll prorate his dues to the Black Caucus?
Yes, she should! Allen West is not the loser here--the voters are.
Prayers for Alan West and all true patriots, and the future of our nation in the face of the socialist occupation.
Yes, she should!
For what it’s worth..
A Great Ticket. I’d vote for the ticket no matter which was at the top.
He’d get my vote.
But running a candidate of his caliber in a nation that elected Obama is like casting pearls before swine.
I’m done w the GOP. This election really was a kick in the balls on many levels.
The Rats stole another one.
West for RNC Chair!
Sarah said the same thing many times. Evil cannot defeat their spirit.

Combative Florida Rep. Allen West has finally accepted that a recount cannot propel him to a come-from-behind victory and conceded his House race early Tuesday morning to Democrat challenger Patrick Murphy.
While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election, West said in a statement released on his Facebook page.
“I say he should be our next president!”
Sad, but not unforeseen. From what I understand, the district (thanks Florida GOP, you damn idiots) was mostly rat. He still did good and I think he will win in 2 years. I hope he takes this time to recharge and get ready. I hope he goes all out next time. He is a leader in the conservative movement and he needs to be out there, engaging and educating.
You the man Col. West.
