WEST: November election provides voters with clear choices
Stuart, FL – Allen West released this statement tonight after winning the Republican primary for United States Congress in Florida’s 18th Congressional District:
“I am humbled by the overwhelming support from the Republican voters of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, and I am honored to be the Republican nominee for Florida’s 18th Congressional District. While we celebrate this victory tonight, the real battle lies ahead — for our country and the future of our children and grandchildren.
My opponent and the left-wing Super PACs supporting him are already running vile, negative advertising against me instead of addressing the issues. But that is the only approach my opponent can take, because he has no new ideas and he can’t possibly run on the same failed policies of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi. He can’t run on his plans for more taxes and spending, or his support for Obamacare–a nationalized healthcare plan which cuts Medicare by $700 billion for current recipients and threatens seniors’ ability to keep their doctors and access the medical care of their choosing.
The comparatively low Democrat voter turnout in this primary demonstrates their disappointment in not only the failed policies of President Obama, but with their own congressional candidate who has done nothing to engender enthusiasm or confidence.
By contrast, Republican voters along the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches turned out in huge numbers today. They’re energized, motivated, and ready to restore fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty and free market prosperity to this great nation. I am honored to stand with them here in Florida and represent them in Washington D.C.”
