Of course, if I went I might have been chased down the hallway by gaggles of college kids seeking to get their photos taken with me, either that, or I would have stood alone in a corner hoping it would be over soon...

Early this morning Allen West released a statement conceding the race after his attempt to obtain a full recount lost any realistic chance.

Based on his team’s analysis there were not enough disputed or suspicious votes to overcome the approximately 2000 vote lead.

As indicated yesterday from someone close to the campaign, West...

Call it a hunch, call it reading tea leaves, call it whatever you want.

With the partial recount of early ballots in St. Lucie county having increased Patrick Murphy’s lead marginally, there are not many options left to Allen West since he remains outside the automatic recount threshold.

I’m not sure this qualifies for the “Ever” award (I’m still partial to this), but it is a fantastic commercial.

Fantastic.

Fantastic, and I almost put another word before that.

The Murphy response? To criticize West’s military record involving the now famous incident when he zealously interrogated a hostile.

Good luck with that, Murphy. Terrorists just...

I’m not sure on whom this reflects more poorly, Alcee Hastings (D-FL, ex-Judge, 1 of 8 fed officials ever successfully impeached, now sometimes spokesman for your Democratic Party), or HuffPo for actually reporting this nonsense.

I met Allen West this weekend when he was in Rhode Island.

Very impressive guy, even more so in person.

He is a prime target for Democrats and SuperPACs.  You can donate to his campaign here.

That is all.

I have mentioned before how Allen West is on the top 10 target list for Democrats this year, Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10″.

For that reason, among others, West is on the Operation Counterweight list, and we have a separate Focus Page with his website and other links.

Now a SuperPAC has been...

Not that this is very surprising.

Notice how the perp complains that conservatives are “anti-gay,” yet wants Javier Manjares of The Shark Tank to know that the perp is not gay, “I’m not a fag fucker.” (at 2:30)  How enlightened.

You will remember the outrage which swept the airwaves when redistricting by the Republican legislature redistricted Allen West out of existence.  There was a heated dispute whether West was targeted or just the victim of circumstance dictated by law.

West ended up switching districts.

The film Slavery By Another Name recently was released.  It is a moving historical account of the post-emancipation enslavement by another name of blacks through a variety of segregationist and other laws and policies.

Unfortunately, but predictably, some used the movie release as an opportunity to score policital points against Republicans both past and present.

I posted in late January about the redistricting of Allen West by the Republican controlled Florida legislature, including reports from the Florida blog The Shark Tank (which won Best State-Level Blog at CPAC this year) that West specifically was targeted.

Republicans in control of the process denied targeting West, asserting that changes...
