West For Senate?
There's talk of Allen West joining the race for the US Senate held by Democrat Bill Nelson.
Now, the speculation has been revived after Congressman West stated on a West Palm Beach newscast that the door to a U.S. Senate run is “cracked very slightly.”
His war with DNC Chair and fellow Florida Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems an effective device to raise his profile.
The idea of a Rubio-West one-two punch in the U.S. Senate is the Democrat Party’s worst nightmare. Florida is already considered to be the”ground zero” of the 2012 general election, and by adding a West senate run into the mix, we will witness the battle of all political battles here in the Sunshine State. This scenerio would also bring to the forefront the 20th Congressional District race between DNC Chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) and business woman Karen Harrington (R).
