FL Congressman Allen West Concedes

Two weeks after Election Day, Florida Congressman Allen West is conceding defeat.

FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

Audio clip:

Since Election Day, Allen West has claimed irregularities in one of the counties he represents. But now:

(West) “We’re not going to go forth and contest the certified results.”

West tells FOX News he wishes Democratic Congressman-elect Patrick Murphy well and doesn’t yet know what he’ll be doing next.

(West) “Leaders don’t need a title to continue to lead and also to be a voice. So I will continue to be a citizen servant of this great nation.”

West was elected two years ago with a lot of Tea Party support and was one of just two African American Republicans in the House.
