It’s been a while, but Lt.Col. Allen West, a former U.S. representative, is running for Governor of Texas.
“There comes a time when a warrior understands that maybe he has to go back and pull out that sword,” said West, who served in the Gulf War and the Iraq War. “I am now drawing my sword.”
“I have not been in elective political office for about a decade. But I can no longer sit on the sidelines and see what has happened in these United States of America, what is happening in the place that I call home,” said West.
“I couldn’t think of a better place and a better day to make that announcement,” said West. “Let’s stand up for God, for country, and for Texas.”
