Allen West Opponents Post Big Money

Even among Democrats, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is a superstar of sorts — the tea party favorite helps his opponents bring in huge sums of money.

The two Democrats hoping to take him on announced impressive third-quarter fundraising figures Tuesday. Former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel raked in more than $415,000, while businessman Patrick Murphy pulled $313,000, according to their respective campaigns.

West does not appear to have released his fundraising figures for the quarter yet.

Even though Florida has yet to complete redistricting, West’s re-election race is guaranteed to be among the most competitive in the state and one to watch. He unseated an incumbent in 2010 with 54 percent of the vote.
