A long day and night of waiting and volunteering has paid off for Allen West supporters in Palm Beach County early this morning when he was declared the winner in that county by a margin of 195 votes, giving him a 49.93% edge over challenger Patrick Murphy. With this news, the focus is now centered on the recount to be conducted on Wednesday in St. Lucie County.Add a comment
On Saturday afternoon, upwards of 600 supporters of Congressman Allen West crammed into the Borlan Center on PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. As the room filled and a secondary room was opened, you could feel the excitement mounting as the crowd waited for Congressman West to enter.
Local singing favorite Lou Galterio opened the event once again with his rousing rendition of the the National Anthem.
After some brief introductions by Palm Beach County Republican Chairman Sid Dinerstein and Representative Patrick Rooney, the gathering was treated to a viewing of the soon to be released video campaign ad with the tag line, "I'm just getting started." http://www.allenwestforcongress.com/media/Add a comment
