WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. If Democrats had to pick a vulnerable tea party Republican theyd love to take out in November, Rep. Allen West would no doubt rank very high.
The bombastic freshman has spent the past two years taunting Democrats he called President Barack Obama probably the dumbest person walking around in America right now, dubbed 80 of his Democratic House colleagues communists and told Debbie Wasserman Schultz she was not a lady to name just a few of his put-downs. Yet three weeks out from Election Day, West, an Afghanistan war vet, has the look of a survivor. The freshmans smash mouth brand of politics might seem like a poor fit for the moderate, Treasure Coast district. But Wests outsized TV presence gave him practically universal name ID out of the gate and an enormous cash advantage in his nasty reelection battle against 29-year-old construction firm executive Patrick Murphy.
Democrats concede that West could well win reelection; privately, some of them say they expect he will.
If theres a secret sauce for Wests success, Republicans and Democrats alike say, its this: Unlike so many of the calculated, poll-tested pols in the Capitol, West actually speaks his mind. The fact that a lot of what he says is intentionally meant to provoke or beyond the pale hasnt caught up to West, though Democrats intend to change that before Nov. 6.
