Texas GOP chairman Allen West announces resignation

The Texas Republican Party announced Friday that retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West would be resigning from his post as chairman of the organization, The Daily Caller reported.

In a press release, the Texas GOP said West had “submitted his irrevocable resignation to the officials’ meeting” as of Friday morning.

“He will remain at the helm of the Texas GOP until a new Chairman can be selected on July 11th at an undetermined location as of now,” the party said.

“A bulwark against progressive socialism”

West’s tenure as chairman of the state GOP began following his election to the position last summer, and was characterized by a number of legislative achievements.

In their statement, the Texas GOP said that “West expressed his humble gratitude” for the opportunity to serve as chairman and considered it his “distinct honor” to do so.

“Lt. Col. Allen West will take this opportunity to prayerfully reflect on a new chapter in his already distinguished career,” the party’s press release said.

“We know that wherever he goes next, he will continue to be a bulwark against progressive socialism and a champion for the principles of Texas and our American Republic,” it added.

“We’re gonna consider it”

While the news of West’s resignation may come as a shock to many, some observers have suggested that the former Florida congressman could be preparing for another shot at political office.

According to The Texas Tribune, West said at a news conference Friday that making a run for public office is “one of the things that I have to go to the Lord in prayer.”

He went on to say it’d be “very disingenuous” not to at least consider the prospect, given how “many people that have asked me to.”

The Army veteran, who was born in Georgia, added: “Many men from Georgia, many men from Tennessee, came here to serve the great state of Texas, and so we’re gonna consider it.”

If he does opt to throw his hat in the political ring, one potential option for West could be a primary challenge against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a fellow Republican who clashed with West over restrictions put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, as the Daily Caller noted. He’d also be up against former state Sen. Don Huffines, who has already signaled his intention to primary Abbott.
