Allen West posts congressional Facebook farewell, says ‘Stay tuned’ about futureby George Bennett | December 31st, 2012
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.
“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.
