Allen West concedes to Patrick Murphy

In one of the last contested races of the 2012 Election, Allen West of Florida, a vocal, tea-party backed Republican Congressman, has conceded the race to Patrick Murphy after a recount of early votes showed that he would not be able to beat Murphy in a total recount.

“For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process,” West said in a statement to POLITICO. “While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.”
