Allen West, Steve Southerland get help from Heritage



mag11.jpgFlorida freshmen Reps. Allen West and Steve Southerland are getting a hand from the Heritage Foundation's political arm, Heritage Action for America, which is asking conservative voters across the country to contribute to their re-election efforts.

West and Southerland have been name part of the Magnificent 11 for their support of the House GOP budget plan that would overhaul Medicare.

Previously, Heritage Action sent direct mail to the congressional districts.
