“Allen West is clearly on the ballot in Martin County.”


Of course he’s on the ballot—in the GOP primary, against the sheriff of Martin County. As I explained in my prior post, (i) West isn’t running in a general election, so reducing turnout in a GOP county won’t be effective in trying to defeat him and (ii) if anything, reducing turnout in Martin County will benefit West since (A) the sheriff of Martin County is his opponent in the GOP primary and (B) West has never represented Martin County before (the old FL-22 that West won in 2010 was wholly within Broward and Palm Beach Counties).

Yes, RINOs may try to defeat Allen West. Yes, one weapon that liberals use to cheat is denying qualified voters in conservative areas (or whom they assume are conservative, such as military voters) the right to vote. But in a GOP primary in FL (where only registered Republicans can vote), dampening turnout in conservative counties won’t do much to prop up the RINO who is running against West, much less when turnout is being dampened in the RINOs home county.

Allen West will win his primary by a comfortable margin. The general election will be tougher, but I have faith that he will beat whichever of Patrick Murphy and Jim Horn win the RAT primary.
