For Allen West, the fat lady has sung!
The controversial GOP Congressman who was a Tea Party fave, finally concededÂ overnight to Democrat Patrick Murphy.
However, it tookÂ West â€“ a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel â€“ two whole weeks after theÂ election and another vote count for West to come to his senses and realize itÂ was over, reports Jose Lambietâ€™s Gossip Extra.
He now believes the 1,904-vote difference could not be overcome, even if aÂ full hand recount were ordered.
The race stood out as one of Floridaâ€™s nastiest in memory. West was hauntedÂ by allegations of torture on the front in the Iraq War and misogyny. And political novice Murphy watched his mug shotÂ from a drunken arrest flash on the TV screens in Westâ€™s ads.
