Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, who is stubbornly refusing to concede to his Democratic challenger, has something to look forward to if he gives up: an invitation to run for office in Georgia.
“I would be glad to have [West] come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”
Everhart called West, who was born and raised in Atlanta, “one of the finest congressmen this country’s ever had.”
