Allen West Likely To Pursue Seat Even If Court Rules Against Him
Losing Congressman Allen West indicated he might continue to pursue legal options even if a circuit court rules against a recount.
If the court rules against him, Democrat Patrick Murphy will likely be named the official winner of the race. But West has 10 days after the race is officially called to contest it.
On Thursday, he didn’t rule out the prospect of continuing the battle.
“I think that the most important thing is that everyone knows across this county that something happened with those early-voting ballots. And if people don’t want to do right by the American people, we will continue to stand and be a voice for them so that their fears and their concerns are still taken care of,” he said.
