Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), who lost his congressional reelection bid to Democrat Patrick Murphy, said Friday that his recent defeat does not mean his political career is over, pointing out that Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress.
During an interview with NPR, host Michel Martin asked the often outspoken congressman what he intends to do after he leaves office, just two years after his 2011 debut on Capitol Hill.
“Look, 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,” West said. “And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.”
During his two years in the House of Representatives, West has made a name for himself through his fiery rhetoric and at times outlandish statements. Below, a look back at some of his most memorable moments:
