U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, offered parting remarks on his congressional Facebook page this afternoon, though he’ll continue to post on a campaign Facebook page.

Tea party freshman firebrand West represents Palm Beach-Broward congressional District 22, but after redistricting he ran for a second term in Palm Beach-Treasure Coast District 18. He narrowly lost in November to Democrat Patrick Murphy in America’s most expensive U.S. House race. Murphy will be sworn in Thursday.

Said West:

“It has been an honor to serve the Constituents of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District. I am deeply thankful to have been given this opportunity. It has been particularly rewarding to have met so many of you personally, and I am humbled that our office was able to make a difference in the lives of thousands of individuals by assisting with their Veterans, Social Security, Medicare and immigration needs.

“I have spent my adult life serving this great nation, and I will continue. Tomorrow, this Facebook page will be taken down until the next chapter is revealed. Stay tuned.

“In the meantime, you may follow me at http://www.facebook.com/ElectAllenWest”
