I have written about this 2016 possible scenario before, in that Rubio runs for President, and Allen West runs for his vacated Senate seat.Could this really happen? Yes.
A new PPP poll has Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz losing in a head-to-head 2016 Senate match up with both Rubio and West.
41% West – 40% DWS
48% Rubio- 40% DWS
I would love to see ‘DWS’ run against either of these two men, but she recently told a local South Florida radio show that the Shark Tank post stating her possible intentions to challenge Rubio, were baseless.
For those of you out there that think West would lose a Senate bid in 2016, know that you are way off base.West can raise the dollars needed to run, and has built-in national name recognition, as well as wide-ranging support from veteran’s groups. Florida is home for the most retired veterans in the country.
Should Rubio announce sometime in 2015, expect him to possibly reach out to West, if the opportunity presents itself.
