WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (TheBlaze/AP) — Tea party Rep. Allen West conceded his re-election fight Tuesday, two weeks after the election gave way to court appearances, two partial recounts and unending accusations by his camp that the vote count wasn’t fair.
In a statement, the Republican freshman said “there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results” but not enough to change the outcome, giving the race to Democratic newcomer Patrick Murphy….
“…Leaders don’t need a title in order to continue to lead and also to be a voice…”
I blame the Republican establishment who worked in collusion with the Progressive establishment for the defeat of Congressman West. The primary goal of the Republican establishment of which is to silence the growing fervor of concerned voices Americans have never been so apparent.
Congressman West represents the voice of we, the people, said voices of which the Republican establishment much like their counterparts would prefer silenced at any cost.
One can most certainly gleam from the words of accession emanating from the Progressive Republican elites these past two weeks that by defeating Congressman West, the Republican establishment has now deemed the voice and concerns of the American people, null and void.
I beg to differ. In furtherance, I would even go so far as to predict that establishment Republicans for their betrayal would pay a price. VOTE THEM OUT!
We, thank you Congressman West for your service while acknowledging that is merely a stop along the way.
We have only just begun to fight.
We, the people, look forward to a continued service with you, sir.
God bless you and your family.
