Allen West open to Senate bid

in Uncategorized by

Maverick U.S. Rep. Allen West has acknowledged (via the News Service of Florida) that Republicans are eyeing his knack for getting press and generating excitement and is opening the door to a possible jump into the U.S. Senate race – though he’s cautioning ‘probably not.’

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, here’s what West said last night before a Palm Beach tea party gathering about that door being open:

“I cracked it open enough so that people can slip a note under the door and I can read the note and I can write back on the note ‘probably not’ and send it back out under the door.”
