GOP Invites Rep. West to Run in Georgia
Politico -- Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, who is stubbornly refusing to concede to his Democratic challenger, has something to look forward to if he gives up: an invitation to run for office in Georgia.
“I would be glad to have [West] come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”
The oft-controversial West is refusing to concede to Democrat Patrick Murphy, even as Murphy attends Congressional orientation events on Tuesday. West is threatening to tie up the election results for months with legal challenges. Murphy leads West by about 2,000 votes out of more than 300,000 cast.
Everhart called West, who was born and raised in Atlanta, “one of the finest congressmen this country’s ever had.”
Blog author's comments - It really is too bad that more members of Congress are not like Allen West. I believe there was voter fraud by the Democrats to defeat him. The Obama administration and Democratic Party wanted to be rid of West.
He was a thorn in their side, spoke for the conservatives and told the truth about Obama and what he and his party are doing to the country. It would be a real loss to the Republican Party if Allen West is not in politics in some capacity. Of course he has not yet conceded the election in Florida.
