Allen West now in the NRCC tent pissing out, rather than pissing in


Rep. Allen West will join the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Executive Leadership Committee, reports POLITICO’S Morning Score. He’s also signed off on three fundraising emails from the NRCC. Earlier this year, he co-chaired an effort with Cory Gardner and Mike McCaul to collect dues from members. “Colonel West is a leader in our party who understands the importance of strengthening our Majority and protecting the free enterprise system from Nancy Pelosi’s agenda,” says NRCC chairman Pete Sessions.
