Former Florida Congressman Allen West (R), who moved to Texas after he lost his seat in 2012, announced his next political move. Mr. West had been looking at either running against Sen. John Cornyn in the Republican primary or attempting to challenge freshman Rep. Colin Allred (D-Dallas) in the 32nd Congressional District. He will run for neither of those offices. Instead, Mr. West announced that he will challenge incumbent James Dickey for the chairmanship of the Texas Republican Party.
