Allen West says he'll run for office again; will he take on Rubio?



Former Rep. Allen West told a Washington radio show Wednesday that he's considering a run for office in 2016 -- and he wouldn't rule out challenging Sen. Marco Rubio. The host says Rubio rode into town as a "tea party hero" then got cozy with liberal Sen. Chuck Schumer on immigration.

"That's a pretty heavy lift," West said, saying a race would delight Democrats. But he added he has a lot of concerns about the immigration bill.
