The West Family has been through some of the most difficult and daunting trials that no American and a family, no matter their party affiliation or belief should have ever have had to endure. From all directions the attacks, vitriol and lies were shameful and vile. While Congressman West has thick skin and enough courage to buck the establishment, it still takes it’s toll. Dr. Angela West has been a prime target as well. There is no shame in the levels that people went to in trying to destroy a solid family unit. The loathsome nasty behavior towards this family over a Congressional race was and still remains in my mind as revolting and left my heart hurting, I could never put myself in their shoes and can only imagine the pain that has been inflicted.
As I sit here tonight I ask the nation of grassroots support to lift this family up in prayer. Some may say “I pray for him and his family daily, or Prayers said” but tonight I ask after you finish reading this to say ONE quick prayer. Please.
Lord Jesus, I ask tonight for your precious hands to wrap around the West family, give them strength, courage and peace. Let them know that all around this country there are people who love them and care about them and the messages that they have brought to this nation. May your mighty and unfailing love for your children give them stability, comfort and endurance for the roads ahead. Instill in them the blessings of Isaiah 40:31 and “renew their strength, so they may soar on the wings like eagles; and run and not grow weary, and walk and not be faint” Lord, creator of all things, lift up this family tonight so they may be strong in their walk with you and be a driving force in your army. Renew and rejuvenate them with your peace that passes all understanding. I ask this in your most precious name, Amen.
Stuart, FL – Today Allen West for Congress released a new television ad with Allen’s wife, Dr. Angela West, discussing the kind of devoted husband, father and leader Allen West is:
“With nothing else to run on, Patrick Murphy and Washington liberals have spent weeks attacking Allen West with lies and phony attacks. Unable to defend the record of Washington liberals and his own record of verbally assaulting police officers, hiring foreign workers and profiting from the failed stimulus, Patrick Murphy is running the most vicious, dishonest campaign in the nation,” said West Campaign Manager Tim Edson.”
Angela West Talks About Allen West as a Husband, Father and Leader
I do my best to ignore political mudslinging. But recent attacks on my husband go too far. They have been called false and racist, and that’s not a word I use lightly. Here’s the truth about Allen. He’s an amazing dad and a hero to our daughters. He’s dedicated his life to serving our country. And Allen is driven by one thing–protecting the American Dream for everybody.” Dr. Angela West
“The recent attacks on my parents’ character are downright wrong and false. This election should be focused on policies, not personal attacks on a family that sacrificed so much for their country,” said Aubrey West. “My father has been serving the people of the United States for 22 years. During that time I have had to watch my father leave to go fight wars to protect this country and the people who are spreading false and hurtful things about my parents.”
Hello, my name is Aubrey West and I would like to discuss about somethings that have been occurring in the press today. My parents are good and honorable human beings that have been strong for not only my sister and I but also our new addition to our family Lin who is a Chinese foreign exchange student.
The recent attacks on both my mother and fathers character has been downright wrong and false. This election for this year should be one that is focused in on policies and ethics, not personal attacks on a family that sacrifices so much for their Country. My father has been serving the people of the United States for 22 years. During that time I have had to watch my father leave to go fight wars to protect this Country and now he is still serving his Country and people are spreading false and hurtful things about my parents who continue to this day to sacrifice for this Country.

-”All soldiers are entitled to outstanding leadership; I will provide that leadership. I know my soldiers and I will always place their needs above my own.”
-”I will not compromise my integrity, nor my moral courage.” -NCO Creed-My father has not forgotten these words since he first spoke them during his service. He continues to serve and he continues to provide outstanding leadership, but now to the people of the US.
For those who have served they know what it is like to say goodbye to a loved one. For the media to take such precious shared moments and warp them into abhorrent lies is disrespectful to the sacrifice and love that this family has shown, the dedication and service my father has shown, and continues to show to the Citizens of the United States of America. - Aubrey West
