In radio interview, Allen West doesn’t rule out challenging Rubio in 2016 GOP Senate primary

by George Bennett | June 19th, 2013

Saying he has “a lot of concerns” about the immigration reform bill backed by Sen. Marco Rubio, former Rep. Allen West didn’t say no this morning when a Washington radio interviewer raised the possibility of West challenging Rubio in a 2016 GOP Senate primary.

WMAL host Larry O’Connor said many tea party conservatives who helped elect Rubio in 2010 aren’t pleased with Rubio’s immigration stance.

“There’s a lot of people whispering maybe he should be primaried in 2016. What about an Allen West primary challenge for that Senate seat?” O’Connor asked.

Said West: “That’s a pretty heavy lift, because you’re talking about running against a sitting senator, and of course, then, that creates that schism that the other side would love to see happen.”

When O’Connor noted that West was “not saying no,” West was silent for a second, then said “Chirping, chirping, chirping” with a laugh.

West suggested he might run “if I see people that are not taking our country down the right path, if I see people that are not standing up for the right type of principles and putting their own party politics before what is best for the United States of America…We’ll see what happens down the pike. God will set my feet on the right path.”

  1. GOP = Lousy Values Says:

    If Marco Rubio and Allen West are the best that the GOP has to offer than the GOP is in big trouble. LMAO!

  2. Florida Mom Says:

    It’s fun to laugh at what remains of the GOP, especially here in FL, and of course in TX and the few other ridiculous wholly run redstates, such as WI and now NC, until one realizes that there are human beings that have their lives impacted by them and their mean and selfish approach to governance. Then I stop laughing and start worrying for America. Our teachers, our first responders, our women, and anyone not white, all have been belittled and denigrated by a party that has allowed it’s leadership to be derailed by truly awful people, such as West, Cruz, Ryan, etc. The future sure looks bleak for this country with people like them calling the shots.

  3. GOP Says:

    If Allen West is serious about what he cares about he would run against Rick Scott for governor in a primary. He can’t or he doesn’t have what it takes.

  4. kelly Says:

    Allen West has a promising career in politics in his mind. Get a real job Allen. You are becoming the Sarah Palin of Florida.

    I know Florida mom. I would much rather live in blue cities like Chicago, Detroit, All of Ohio and of course New Yawk.

    They are so safe that you can walk down the middle of mainstreet in the middle of the night like I do in my city right now.

    Don’t worry, you will ALL GET EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE ASKING FOR.

    Just don’t complain about it later or you might just dissapear in the night or have a drone watching your house.

  8. Mattrue Says:

    It is a shame that Allen West cannot get the message. The supporters of military veterans have all but given up on Allen West. He is a traitor to the military veteran and is a disgrace to America. If he had any brain in his little of worthless knowledge head, he would not have anything to do with any Republican or Tea Party affiliations. The leader of the house of congress, John Boehner, came out today, with a statement that the American people have a low approval rating of the government of America. Actually, moron John Boehner, we have a low opinion of you and the job you have done in congress. You suck and your republican followers suck. We will make sure, that you and any of your party are never re-elected. Allen West, make sure you keep your job with Faux News, you and your kind are done in politics.
