With ‘newfound freedom,’ Allen West aims to boost conservative minorities and veterans

by George Bennett | March 14th, 2013

OXON HILL, Md. — If you thought Allen West seemed too restrained as a tea party Republican member of the U.S. House, don’t worry.

West says in a new fundraising appeal that his narrow November loss to Democrat Patrick Murphy has given him “newfound freedom…to take my efforts to defeat the Obama liberal progressive agenda to the next level.”

That next level is a new PAC called the Allen West Guardian Fund, which will seek to elect a dozen “hard-charging constitutional conservatives who either have a military background or are minorities committed to taking a stand against big government and President Obama for the next four years.”

West is expected to roll out more details this morning when he addresses the Conservative Political Action Conference here just outside Washington.

The hard-charging West is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who was one of only two black Republicans in the House in the 112th Congress. (Now there are none; West lost and South Carolina’s Tim Scott was appointed to a U.S. Senate vacancy.)

In addition to the PAC launch, West has started The Allen West Foundation, a 501(c)4 nonprofit aimed at “educating and inspiring the next generation of conservative leaders within the minority and veteran communities nationwide.”
