    Hallelujah! I needed some good news.

  2. James says:

    West is one principled guy.
    You can be certain he will use the position to be MORE vocal!

  3. Jim22 says:

    “The margin of victory is within legal guidelines to prompt an automatic recount of all the votes in Florida’s 18th Congressional District, something Congressman West has pushed for since Democrat Party challenger Patrick Murphy was declared the winner early Wednesday morning.”

    From a sample of 16,275 votes, there are counting errors of 667 and 132 for each candidate.

    West asks court to order full recount of early votes in St. Lucie County
    by George Bennett | November 13th, 2012

    Republican Rep. Allen West‘s campaign says it filed a request for an injunction late today ordering St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker to conduct a recount of all 37,397 ballots from early voting rather than the 16,275 ballots the county canvassing board decided to recount Sunday.

    A copy of the filing wasn’t immediately available.

    A partial recount of early votes on Sunday showed Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy losing 667 votes and West losing 132 — a net gain of 535 votes for West that reduced Murphy’s small lead in the congressional District 18 race.
