by Lone SharkWell, it’s official- Congressman Allen West has conceded his 18th congressional district race to Democrat Patrick Murphy earlier this morning.
It goes without saying that the loss is a huge one for conservatives, as West is one of the most fearless and articulate advocates for the conservative cause and our national security, his efforts will be greatly missed in Congress.
And permit us an opportunity to say something that no doubt will be ridiculed by Democrats, but is true nevertheless- the results of this race proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that merit, character, and experience matter little to Democrats- as long as there’s a (D) next to an individual’s name, far too many Democrats will support a clearly underqualified individual with no experience of any appreciable kind over a Republican, and in this case, an extraordinarily qualified one.
This race could not have more clearly contrasted two individuals with such an enormous gulf between them in so many regards, and Floridians opted for the one with so little an understanding of policy matters (as was clearly demonstrated in the first debate) and whose candidacy was ultimately propped up by his dad and his handlers.
For shame, Florida.
”Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.” – Congressman Allen West
