Allen West Endorses 4 Conservative Republican Candidates
Former U.S. Rep. Allen West, who has opened the door to a political comeback in 2016, offered a round of endorsements to Republicans across the country on Wednesday. The Allen West Guardian Fund PAC endorsed U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who is running against U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., in 2014. West also backed Republican congressional candidates Mia Love, who is angling for a rematch against U.S. Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, and Don Bogino who is looking to challenge U.S. Rep. John Delaney, D-Md. West also backed tea party favorite E.W. Jackson who is running for lieutenant governor of Virginia in November.
“More than ever before, America needs more principled, conservative patriots serving in our government – in Washington, state houses, and city and town halls throughout the country," West wrote supporters on Wednesday. “That's why I created the Allen West Guardian Fund to elect 14 new hard-charging constitutional conservatives in 2014 who are either minorities or veterans to help put this nation back on track. Over the past several months, the Guardian Fund has been building up a grassroots army of conservatives, in addition to vetting and meeting with conservative candidates across the country.
“I'm confident that each of these candidates will stand firm against Barack Obama's big-government agenda, reckless foreign policy, and destructive economic plan,” West insisted.
