In a rare concession to reality, beloved Tea Party caucus member Allen West, who has served only one term in Congress, has admitted that maybe he didn't win re-election after all…
Florida Republican Rep. Allen West conceded to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy Tuesday morning, wrapping up one of the highest-profile and most expensive House races in the country.
"While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results, and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and this past weekend’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election," West said in a statement.
Enjoy your day in the sun, reality. But don't get too comfortable. Allen West is a politician from Florida, and they don't take too kindly to your kind around them parts.
