WASHINGTON DC - Wednesday, former Congressman Colonel Allen West's Guardian Fund political action committee endorsed Republican Larry Kaifesh in his bid to represent the 8th CD to Congress.
The 8th CD is currently represented by Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), also a veteran. Colonel West has been critical of Duckworth's loyalties.
"I just don’t know where her loyalties lie," West said of Duckworth, during a recent interview on "The Janet Mefferd Show."
"You know, for her to have been a veteran, a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the right thing," West continued. "And hopefully, you know, she will remember the oath of office that she took as an Army officer and not the allegiance I guess she believes she has to the liberal progressives of the Democrat Party."
