Herman Cain's 'a distracter,' says Allen West

From WMAL:

WASHINGTON -- Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain has become a distraction in the race, says GOP Congressman Allen West.

"Beyond reassessing his campaign, he probably needs to understand that he is a distracter for what's going on right now and we should move on," said West, a Republican congressman who represents Florida.

West says Cain is no longer the front-running alternative to Romney -- a role once held by candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, and that now belongs to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I think it's going to be a two-man race when you boil it down," West told the WMAL Morning Majority.
