Allen West has just released a statement that suggests this race is far from over; even though, the actual vote count shows Murphy in the lead.
West's campaign manager, Tim Edson, released the following statement regarding the results:
"This race is far from decided, and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance. There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district.
"Late last night Congressman West maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections 'recounted' thousands of early ballots. Following that 'recount' Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes. In addition, there were numerous other disturbing irregularities reported at polls across St. Lucie County including the doors to polling places being locked when the polls closed, in direct violation of Florida law, thereby preventing the public from witnessing the procedures used to tabulate results. The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections office clearly ignored proper rules and procedures, and the scene at the Supervisor's office last [Tuesday] night could only be described as complete chaos. Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County. We will continue to fight to ensure every vote is counted properly and fairly, and accordingly will pursue all legal means necessary."
Votes are still being counted in Palm Beach County. They're currently at a 50-50 split, so a recount of the duplicated absentee ballots that were mailed out may need to be recounted.

I smell "Hit Job". Hang in there Colonel!
God i hope he pulls it off....this party does not have enough fighters like Allen West...
IF ONLY all conservatives held the line to uncover DNC fraud.
Our elections are a mess. In Michigan Wayne county (Detroit), Berrien county (Benton Harlem) and Genesee county (Flint) still haven’t turned in their official tally.
An interesting view:
It was the media (MSM) that, all through the evening, “called” the election for Obama. And conservatives sat in stunned disbelief. Yet, wasn’t it the MSM that had been in “the tank” for Obama since 2006, providing him political cover time and time again? And here we just take them at their word.
When they “announce” an election result, our skepticism is swept aside?
And notice as soon as the polls close in a blue state, Obama was basically called the winner with little of the vote counted. However, in red states like S. Carolina and Georgia, they wait forever to call them for Romney.
My contention since 2000 is that the left’s goal is to systematically destroy our faith in our electoral system, for both parties, precipitating a civil war.
A net difference of 4400 votes is a bit much to “miscount” on the early ballots, I’d say.
Isn't that sort of like folding your money in half and then claiming that you doubled your money?
West doesn’t bend over for anybody
Incredible; (as well, pathetic and outrageous) if he actually 'won'.
Mia Love lost at the last second too.
Maybe Allen should not have voted for NDAA or funding Obamacare.
As the close Florida vote for president drug on into the night, and Dade and Broward county were very slow turning their counts in, I couldn’t help but wonder if everything was as it should be. Now some of the information concerning the counting in AW’s district makes we wonder again.

I wish Mitt would have held out the concession speech for a little while. I’m glad West is holding out, because I suspect fraud. Hah, I know there’s fraud everywhere in the swing states and for those conservatives who were targeted.
Go West!! Don’t concede until the votes are all counted properly.
That’s what I was noticing also...the Media calling this election, way early while people were still voting in the swing states. I kept going WTH? Have the absentee and military votes even been counted?
