West Palm Beach mayor Lois Frankel announced today that she'll take on Broward Republican Rep. Allen West -- elected in November as a tea party favorite.
"Congress isn’t working for working families," Frankel said. "There’s too much partisanship and not enough results. We need a Member of Congress who knows how to get things done.”
The National Republican Congressional Committee didn't wait for the official word -- it was out with a press release attacking Frankel's tenure as mayor before her announcement. Frankel is the second Democrat to target West. Fort Lauderdale businessman Patrick Murphy last week announced his plans to run, calling West a "right wing extremist."
