November 2, 2010. We Won! Thank you Florida. Thank you America!
Lt. Col. Allen B. West (Ret) has been elected to Congress by the 22nd Congressional District in Florida. Praise God!
This fabulous American has been elected as one of two black members of Congress from the Southern States; the first since the Reconstruction of 1876 and according to Pete Hegseth at Weekly Standard,we now have “six Iraq and Afghanistan veterans (who) were elected to Congress (and possibly seven, if Jesse Kelly pulls out his race in Arizona’s 8th district)” !
It’s about time!!
Those of us who formed a National “Go West For Allen West “support team at ” Go West For Allen West “ in 2008 are not only thrilled that Allen is “Going To Washington”, but feel strongly there’s more in the future for this man than just Congress. He’s only just begun!
Here’s our video of Allen’s Victory Speech (thanks to Michael Ackerman)
