UPDATE Allen West vs. Patrick Murphy for Congress (FL) Count Hussled to Sunday 7am ET
Don't listen to what some others are reporting. It isn't over yet. About 6 hours until showtime...please pray for Allen West and pass this on tonight if at all possible - W.E.
UPDATE - below original entry
Some may have seen a headline today in the leftist Huffington Post stating Allen West has lost his re-election bid and will not have a recount. That is flatly incorrect.
From Tanya Grimsley, electoral activist in the Allen West campaign, posted today in Facebook:
Because the challenger Murphy jumped the gun as did most of the media without checking the facts and Congressman Allen West no conceding in this race, the ballots the were being counted were from the original race on Tuesday. These ballots put Allen West ahead, but not within the margin needed to declare victory. The ballots in St Lucie will also need to be completed this coming Wed. and from there will determine if either candidate is the winner or a forced mandatory recount of all the votes in the district.A video interview held yesterday (Friday) tells the story in Rep. West’s own words.
Remember, no winner has been declared by the SoE. This is fact.
Update: Allen West campaign letter to Supervisor of Elections, St. Lucie County.

Stuart, FL – Today West for Congress released the following statement regarding the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount early votes:Note from Ms. Grimsley in Facebook on the above:
“Tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., the St Lucie County Supervisor of Elections will recount all early votes cast in St. Lucie County. West for Congress is pleased with the Supervisor’s decision, as the counting of early votes on Election Night was of great concern to our campaign, given the large shift that occurred at midnight of nearly 4,000 votes.
This decision should help shed light on the situation of this election. This is the action we were seeking to ensure the results of this election were fair and accurate.
While we still look forward to reviewing the poll books used to check in voters during early voting and Election Day, this recount goes a long way to ensuring an accurate outcome.”
