Allen West Finally Concedes

Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West announced this morning that he won’t challenge Democrat Patrick Murphy’s narrow victory in their nationally watched battle for the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast congressional District 18 seat.

“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 early this morning to The Palm Beach Post.

West later made his concession Fox-official by appearing briefly on Fox & Friends at about 6:15 a.m.

...

Until now, West has refused to concede, citing admitted errors by St. Lucie County in its initial tallying of more than 37,000 ballots from early voting. West finally succeeded in getting the county to conduct a full retabulation of its early ballots, but the recount failed to reduce Murphy’s margin to the 0.5 percent or closer that would push the race into a full recount of the entire district.

6. Head case must go.

This is a typical tea party candidate, just a head case. Fox news is in his future.

11. Answer: Low turnout among Democrats and Independents, high turnout from Tea Partiers.

The "Tea Party revolution" was an abberation, but a costly one.

16. He still got 49.6% of the vote.

We have a lot of uninformed and misinformed voters. And clowns like West, who are willing to toe the plutocratic line, have a ton of money available for their campaigns. He outspent Murphy more than 4 to 1. A slightly less unhinged candidate promoting the same nonsense probably could have won.
