A supporter at an Allen West appearance today in Broward County jokingly suggested a new path to victory for the Republican challenger: get former President Bill Clinton to ask Ron Klein to get out of the congressional race.
Allen laughed heartily, but demurred. "We want him to stay in the race," West said. "We want a race."
West stopped at an early voting site in Broward, autographing campaign signs and hugging supporters.
"Stay conservative," one woman told him. "I will," West replied, "There's no other way."
Observers suggest the race will be a squeaker. West lost to Klein in 2008, but has more money and name recognition this time around.
