Allen West: "[N]o one is really exciting anyone out there right now"

“I’ve got to tell you that no one is really exciting anyone out there right now,” West told the conservative website Newsmax in an interview posted late Thursday. “I think by September, October, maybe we’ll see a front-runner. But right now, you know, kind of lukewarm.”

West said he “couldn’t say right now” if he had any favorites, and that his only focus was on seeking reelection to his House seat next fall.
