Both Mia Love and A. West were helped by redistricting. Why did they lose? West had lots of money, Mia had almost none. To win in the future we need people like Love and West in the party. We can no longer win with just white guys.

Helped by redistricting? West's very dedicated district was dissolved by FLORIDA REPUBLICANS. The result was two districts with, now, liberal democrats in both. The FLORIDA REPUBLICANS also left Corrinne Brown's TOTALLY ILLEGAL district, basically untouched, with a new number. It breaks EVERY ONE of the requirements laid out by the 2010 Amendment.
No More republicans - Tea Party/Business Owners from now on.

Rep. Allen West is in still locked in an extremely tight race this morning that is too close to call with Democrat Patrick Murphy, but West is behind by 3,000 votes.

Patrick Murphy has 160,328 votes, or 50.4 percent, to West’s 157,782 votes, or 49.6 percent, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press, which has yet to call the race.

Murphy called the race for himself last night and already gave a victory speech. West has yet to concede.
