Florida certifies victory for House newcomer (Patrick Murphy over Allen West) [View all]

Source: The Hill

The state of Florida certified congressman-elect Patrick Murphy (D) as the winner of his race against incumbent Rep. Allen West (R).

“As expected, the Election Night results have been confirmed. It is now time to put the campaign behind us. I am honored that the voters of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches have chosen me to be their voice in Congress. Regardless of whether they voted for me or my opponent, I am committed to representing the interests of all residents of Florida’s 18th Congressional district in Washington,” Murphy said in a Saturday statement.

West had raised concerns about the vote. The Tea Party freshman sent a letter to a Florida elections board supervisor on Thursday that said he might take legal action over what he termed “discrepancies” at the polls.

The vote gap between Murphy and West was too large to trigger a recount.
