Allen West backs Mark Bircher in race for Young seat



Allen West throws his support to the underdog Republican running to succeed C.W. Bill Young in Congress. West:

From my vantage point off Capitol Hill, it appears the Republicans have lost the will to fight, and the desire for victory. Is it any wonder? So few congressional members have served in uniform.

Brigadier General Mark Bircher is exactly the type of citizen-servant our country needs on Capitol Hill – and precisely the type of leader the Left would like to suppress....

But first, BGen Bircher must win a January 14th Republican primary in which he is pitted against a pair of much more experienced and well-known politicians: David Jolly, Young’s former general counsel and lobbyist; and Kathleen Peters, a pro-choice state representative.

BG Gen Bircher understands his oath of service has no statute of limitations. Americans must rally behind leaders like this warrior and send a message that we want principled men and women, those who have been willing to lay down their lives for this great nation in our nation’s capital.

January 14th is just around the corner. BGen Bircher is one of the few, the proud, a United States Marine. He knows how to fight, and he knows how to win. He will take a strong stand to defeat Obamacare and provide viable solutions. Let’s make him a United States Congressman.
