Rep. Allen West concedes House race to Patrick Murphy
Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West announced this morning that he won’t challenge Democrat Patrick Murphy’s narrow victory in their nationally watched battle for the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast congressional District 18 seat.
…West later made his concession Fox-official by appearing briefly on Fox & Friends at about 6:15 a.m.
…Until now, West has refused to concede, citing admitted errors by St. Lucie County in its initial tallying of more than 37,000 ballots from early voting. West finally succeeded in getting the county to conduct a full retabulation of its early ballots, but the recount failed to reduce Murphy’s margin to the 0.5 percent or closer that would push the race into a full recount of the entire district.
…The West-Murphy contest was one of the costliest and nastiest House races in the nation. West spent more than $17 million and Murphy more than $3.6 million while outside PACs poured in more than $6 million more.
