Via The Hill:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) shot down an invitation to run for office in Georgia.

In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, West turned down an invitation by Georgia Republican Party Chairwoman Sue Everhart.

“No,” West told the Atlanta newspaper on Wednesday. “Look, let me tell you something. I have moved my wife around for 20-some-odd years, being in the military, and she was also the daughter of a career military guy. When I retired, she chose Florida. That’s where my daughter’s in school, in college, my youngest daughter’s in high school. That’s our home. It’s a very nice thing, but I’m not an NFL free agent.”
