Lois Frankel announces she'll challenge Allen West

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."

Great...the choices next year will span from far right to far left. When will centrists ever realize they control the vast majority of the political landscape. Only about half of D's and R's actually know and care what their parties stand for. The rest tend of register the way their family or friends do, sans much thought to what they really believe... Think! People.
