Rep. Allen West (R-FL) knows he probably can’t win re-election in his current district now that his constituents know that he’s batshit crazy, so he’s going to find another district.
It’s tough getting elected as a Republican in the People’s Republic of Broward County, one of the bluest stretches of Florida’s political real estate. Still, US Rep. Allen West pulled it off in 2010, when he bested Rep. Ron Klein.
But now the Florida Senate’s proposed map for Congressional seats indicate it could be even tougher for the tea-party favorite to win District 22. The proposed district is 4 percent more Democratic than it currently is.
As I noted previously, this is just his stepping stone to his show on Fox.
