The Hill reports:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) thanked supporters on his Facebook page Monday for standing with him as "guardians of America's honor," as he continues to contest his Florida House race despite the state declaring his opponent the winner.

The state of Florida certified Patrick Murphy (D) as the winner on Saturday, following a recount of early ballots that put Murphy far enough ahead of West to avoid another automatic recount.

West, a freshman congressman and Tea Party favorite, has refused to concede the race. Facebook Fark Furl
