Allen West: 'Lincoln Only Served One Term in Congress, Too'
On National Public Radio last Friday, former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) explained his future role in politics. “Look,” said West, “you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.”
Rep. West added, “And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.”
That comment could be a hint that West could be considering a presidential bid in 2016.
