There’s a chance that Allen West might challenge Marco Rubio in the next primary in Florida. Personally, I think it’s a slight chance, but let’s say this did happen…who do you think you’d vote for and why? Also, who do you think would win this fight if this took place?
There have been quite a few reports about this today…this is one is via DC:
In an interview on Washington, D.C.’s WMAL 105.9 FM “Mornings on the Mall” radio show on Wednesday, former Florida Republican Rep. Allen West indicated that he might be open to challenging Sen. Marco Rubio in a 2016 GOP Senate primary.
“That’s a pretty heavy lift, because you’re talking about running against a sitting senator, and then, of course, that creates that schism that the other side would love to see happen,” West, who has ruled out a 2014 run, told host Larry O’Connor.
West, who said he wanted to “serve this country in whatever capacity I possibly can,” explained that his frustration with Rubio stemmed from the possible GOP presidential candidate’s support of the current immigration reform bill, which is currently being debated in the Senate.
“Do we need to do something about immigration? Absolutely,” West added. “This whole ‘comprehensive’ thing – I think the bill now is up to 1,075 pages. Once again, the American people don’t trust that,” he added.
