Republican Allen West debated liberal Democratic Congressman Ron Klein in Florida last night. The League of Women Voters held their first debate in Coral Springs, Florida.
The community and staff were very pleased with West’s showing against his liberal opponent.
Allen West, who is endorsed by VetsforFreedom.PAC, has 20 years of service in the US Army. West holds a Master of Military Arts and Sciences from the US Army Command and General Staff Officer College in political theory and military history and operations.
The debate last night was the first between West and Klein.
West was outstanding. A great moment during the debate was when Klein tried to blame Bush for the mortgage meltdown and financial crisis facing America.
The crowd erupted in boos:
