Stuart, FL – West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson released the following statement regarding the 19th Circuit Court’s ruling today against Patrick Murphy’s attempt to halt the retabulation of early votes:
“We are pleased the judge did not concede to Murphy’s desperate demands to halt the retabulation of early votes already underway in St. Lucie County. Clearly, if the canvassing board has already agreed there were discrepancies and under- or over-counted ballots, it would make no sense to halt the retabulation. From the start, Murphy’s motion was procedurally and substantively lacking.
Once again, all we have ever asked for is a fair and accurate count of the votes to preserve the integrity of the voting process for the citizens of District 18. Integrity is something Patrick Murphy and his band of lawyers seem to have in short supply, as evidenced by their continued attempts to prevent votes from being counted.”
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
WEST RAISES OVER $4 MILLION IN THIRD QUARTER 2012, HAS OVER $3 MILLION CASH ON HAND
Stuart, FL – Today Allen West for Congress released FEC numbers for the third quarter of 2012 showing over $4 million in contributions and over $3 million cash on-hand. For the cycle, West has now raised over $14.5 million.
Allen West for Congress campaign manager Tim Edson offered the following statement:
“Allen West’s principled conservative message stands in stark contrast to Patrick Murphy’s empty rhetoric and business as usual nonsense. Allen West’s enormous grassroots fundraising in Florida’s 18th Congressional District and across the country is evidence of the enthusiastic support driving our campaign.
With this report, Patrick Murphy’s desperation will only grow. Every day, Murphy’s lies, smears and phony poll numbers reinforce the fact he’s just a spoiled brat throwing a fit because his campaign is on the ropes. As the DCCC cancels advertising on his behalf and abandons his campaign, he is realizing his father’s money isn’t enough to save him and he’s lashing out.”
A recent survey by Public Opinion Strategies showed Allen West leading Patrick Murphy among likely voters by 52%-41%. The survey shows Patrick Murphy is deeply in trouble with only 34% of respondents having a favorable impression of him. Clearly, his campaign is on its last legs.
