Allen West Finally Concedes

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) has finally thrown in the towel.

According to a press release from the Tea Party favorite:

“For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.”

Dissatisfied with the vote totals, West originally sought a recount in Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties, and filed injunctions to impound ballot machines.

With West’s official concession, Patrick Murphy will be the new representative from Florida’s 18th congressional district.
