Leaders with Ginni Thomas: Rep. Allen West on a GOP nominee for president

Ginni Thomas Contributor

PREVIEW: Interview with Rep. Allen West (R-FL)

Col. Allen West spent more than 20 years in the Army, including several tours in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Gulf, before deciding to enter politics. West was one of 32 black Republicans to run for federal office last fall, and one of two who made it into the House. In November, West handily beat incumbent Ron Klein in a South Florida district that includes West Palm Beach and Boca Raton. His eloquence, unyielding conservatism and habit of speaking from principle quickly made him a hero to conservatives. In February, West gave the keynote address at CPAC in Washington.

Listen to West discuss the qualities of a Republican presidential nominee below, and come back to see his interview with TheDC’s Ginni Thomas this Thursday!
