Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) appears to have lost his reelection bid in Palm Beach. While he hasn't conceded, Republicans in Georgia are already looking to find him a new congressional home. 

“I would be glad to have him come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Georgia Republican Party chairwoman Sue Everhart told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn't in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”
