Fox News contributor Allen West hasn't even declared a primary challenge to Senator Marco Rubio yet but his colleague, Todd Starnes, apparently about to be overcome with the vapors at the thought of the immigration reform bill, has issued his endorsement. Apparently, it's not enough that Fox is helping West get publicity, cred and dough by paying him as a contributor.
By the way, West surely knows - even if Starnes doesn't - that at the moment, there's almost no way he could win. Rubio currently enjoys a 51% approval rating from Florida voters. As The Hill reports:
The one-term congressman, who narrowly lost reelection last year, acknowledged he would face an uphill battle.
"That's a pretty heavy lift, because you're talking about running against a sitting senator, and then of course, that creates that schism that the other side would love to see happen," said West.
If Rubio should give up his seat to run for president, then West, with his crazy hate-mongering, would likely be Florida's Todd Akin or Christine O'Donnell.
Not too long before Allen West becomes the junior senator from Florida.— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) June 24, 2013
Sure, Toad — if, by “not too long”, you mean “a cold day in hell” . . .
