Although Allen West has yet to concede in his bitterly-fought Florida House race, nearly every media outlet has called the race for his opponent.
But never fear, Georgia Republicans are coming to the controversial Tea Party member’s rescue.
According to Politico, the southern state’s GOP wants to recruit West to run for election there at some point.
“I would be glad to have [West] come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”
Everhart calls West, who was born and raised in Atlanta, “one of the finest congressmen this country’s ever had.”
