    Its actually a different district since the redrawing


  • Yep…all new people, with a lot more Democrats. This was revenge on the Tea Party. The powers that be can’t have a powerful Tea Party.

    Whoa, I thought he was up 10 points. Something is not right in this whole election. I’m guessing the warning to their followers to not despair the early returns had a
    Chavez-like overtone to it. Hmmm.

  • Mike

    This isn’t the same country of our parents and grandparents. It saddens me to no end to see liberals destroying this country and how so many people are going along with it.

  • Hugh

    They must be racist.

  • beasn

    The GOP powers-that-be are in cahoots. Explains their lack of interest on most things unConstitutional Barky has done. Time to toss the whole party overboard.

  • retire05

    By less than 1,000 votes? Ummmm, think I will call foul on this one. If I were West, I would be looking closely at those votes. It wouldn’t be the first time the Chicago machine stole an election. Just take a look at the Hillary/Obama primary in Texas in 2008.

    What about the miltary votes that are being screwed

    any word on mia love?

  • Annie

    Silly Bigkahuna, now that Dear Leader has retained control, who will do anything about it?

  • too bad i thought he was the best tea party candidate elected in 2010.

  • Ghost

    uhhhhhh, WHO did the redrawing of districts? isn’t FL legislature Republican-controlled?
    Soooooo, WHO is taking revenge on the Tea Party?

    this is a two-front war that we’ve already lost. forget it folks, it’s over. America is finished.

  • Granny

    America lost more than one patriot tonight. Looks to me like a total wipeout – and it carries the stench of sulfur.

  • Pat262

    We had a Republic. We just lost it. Bye bye America.

  • American Woman

    West is a great American; this is quite a loss for conservatives. I wish him well and hope Fox signs him up as a replacement for Juan Williams.

  • bigkahuna

    Fox should fire the liberals on the network and let them find work elsewhere as well as healthcare insurance etc etc etc. Its time to let liberals get the fruits of their votes.

  • Treese

    Google reporting Mia Love lost by 2800 votes.

  • Here is local report on Mia Love:

    SALT LAKE CITY — The numbers are in for the major races we’ve been watching tonight, and Jim Matheson and Ben McAdams are the victors. Both Mia Love and Mark Crockett have lost their race.

    The 4th Congressional District race came down to approximately 2,818 votes, sending Rep. Jim Matheson back to Washington D.C.

    The Republican Party had several victories throughout the state, but lost two of the races they were really hoping to win. As a whole, many of the remaining supporters are disappointed with the election results.

    Crockett said he’s disappointed, but is looking forward to going back to regular life. We have not heard from either Crockett or Love, and I’m not sure we will. No one is here to see it.

  • BurmaShave

    So, is that a racist election result?

  • Mad Hatter

    I just don’t understand what people are doing in this country, Allen West gets voted out, and Alan Grayson gets voted back in.

    The world has turned upside down.

  • Lady Mondegreen

    The (tea) party’s over, it’s time to call it a day.

  • shadow

    More Democrats in his district? That is one of the most gerrymandered districts in Florida. For the most part, it hugs the coast, venturing inland only to pick up the tony communities of Parkland, Eagle Trace and Cooper City.

  • Ghost

    how did we go from a sweeping near-total 2010 mid-term victory to a TOTAL! wipeout?

  • bg


    he’ll be back..

    actually, doubt he’s going anywhere
    but in their faces twice as hard.. 😡

    we pulled a Boehner..


  • Redwine

    The election results are so weird. Everything is upside down. Was fraud so rampant? Was the tampering of machines and ballots so widespread? What about interference at the polls or with the judges? Something stinks to high heaven.

  • Salvage warned us, 6 or 7 months ago that the election was rigged,……….

  • Mekan

    Can’t have no uppity black folks on the progressive plantation now.

    He shouldn’t concede. The separation is less than 1 pt. RECOUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Look-Out

    The Chicago thugs chose the winner of every contest. You can do that when you’re well-practiced in stealing elections. And own the voting machines.

    Love and West had to go. Can’t let two great blacks with conservative/Republican values serve. It was nice, though, that they let Bachmann keep her seat. Might have been too obvious if they’d taken that one too.

    I want to start a new America. West/Love 2012. Let’s do it before the end of the year.

  • Gary

    That’s my district in Florida. I never heard even one person supporting Patrick Murphy, and I talk to a lot of people about politics.

    I never got on board with the Kenya crap, but today I do feel like the man in the White House did not legitimately win the right to be there.

    Now there’s nothing but time for the rumors to start about voter fraud.
    I’ll never trust this electronic machine system again. There’s no way to physically verify it like there was with a paper ballot. We just accept the numbers.

  • Chalice


    That is the absolute best statement I have read on this farce. We need to return to paper ballots, real voter ID and I would trust the results. But…they don’t care if you trust the results, do they?

    America doesn’t deserve LTC West.

  • Bob

    Allen West should move to the district held by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and run against her. She is a pathetic excuse for a Congresswoman.

  • Jon

    I predicted Obama’s victory and the loss of many.

    The question is, do we stick around with the GOP and attempt to fight an ever uphill struggle against demographics?

    Or do we start taking back control LOCALLY and nullify the unconstitutional laws being forced on us. At this point there is NO OTHER option but to nullify ObamaCare at the STATE level.

    I live in this district. While West may be a phenom to the rest of the country, he’s no longer viewed with same favorability here. His rantings have offended educated white women and Jews. His commercials in the last week were outrageous.

  • Linda



    That is NOT what the number of votes SAY ABOUT HIM! SO YOU’VE BEEN PROVEN WRONG!

    Maybe you can share the commercials you are talking about SO THAT WE CAN SEE HOW WRONG YOU ARE AGAIN!
