These donors are fired up about Allen West

Meet and greets over wine and cheese can get a little dull on the campaign circuit. No matter what you think of Congressional candidate Allen West's views, the guy gets points for creativity when it comes to fundraisers: on Saturday night he will host the "West Great American South Florida Shootout" at the Delray Shooting Center.

The flier asks for $1,000 per team which includes four shooters, ammunition and refreshments or $250 per individual. Sorry kids, you have to be 21 to shoot.

Our efforts to find out how many have signed up for the "challenging shooting games" and to score an invite for ourselves were unsuccessful, so we're hoping someone sends us an email and tells us how it went.

Campaign finance reports are due today from Republican West and the incumbent he is trying to unseat: Democratic Congressman Ron Klein.
