ABC News caught up with former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., at CPAC and despite his loss to Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., in November he said “2012 was great for me.”
“I’m still alive,” West said while he was stopping to greet supporters outside of the main ballroom here. “You guys think just because you lose a congressional race doesn’t mean you are dead, doesn’t mean you can’t continue to serve your country so to be here to be part of the opening speaking and continue to talk about our country, I’m doing fine.”
CPAC invited West to give the keynote speech at the conference in 2011. This year he was one of the first speakers opening up CPAC 2013, held in National Harbor, Md. As for his political future he said he is “probably not” going to make a run for his former South Florida in 2014 because “there are a lot of things I want to do,” but he kept the door open for 2016.
“I want to help others so we’re going to launch a PAC that will help minority and military conservatives,” West said. “That’s my immediate focus and then we will see what God leads me to do in 2016.”
As for some of the hotter topics at this year’s CPAC he said he has “no problem with civil unions and I think that’s something everyone can agree on,” but the focus of the country should be on “economic security, our international security and our national security.”
“I think immigration ties into that because it affects your economy. It affects your national security because everyone coming across the border is not just going to try and cut grass and work,” West said. “First and foremost what I want to make sure is tax payer funded benefits are not going to people who are here illegally, we’ve got to make sure we are doing the right thing to secure our border and enforce our laws and then further down the road we can have some sort of path to residency.”
On the lighter side he said he is most looking forward to seeing younger conservatives, “passing the baton” and “raising the next conservative leader.”
