TAMMY BRUCE, RADIO HOST: Do you find for your Guardian Fund, that itâ€™s necessary because the Republican Party kind of pushes out the people youâ€™re describing, the military heroes, the minorities who are running, do you think that theyâ€™re finding, that theyâ€™re getting better on those issues at all? Like your loss by 200 votes, Mia Loveâ€™s loss, and she is again running again. I take it that you're supporting her as well, obviously.
BRUCE: You mentioned that -- you referred briefly to the election being stolen. We now know that so many people have been arrested or indicted on voter fraud in this last election. Many of us do believe you won that election, Allen. Does that bother you at all, would you ever re-run again? What are your thoughts on that?
FMR. REP. ALLEN WEST (R-FL): Well, weâ€™ll get back into the political scene, but there are so many things I can do right now that can really help us going forward to the midterm elections. Itâ€™s not about me; itâ€™s about the team, itâ€™s about our country and thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m focused on primarily. So after the midterm election cycle weâ€™ll look into getting back into the political framework in 2016. Thereâ€™s no doubt about it.
BRUCE: So youâ€™re saying right now here to the Tammy audience that you are still open to moving back in the political arena directly?
ALLEN WEST: Oh absolutely, there's no doubt about that. I mean, Iâ€™m not packing up and taking my toys and going away. But itâ€™s once again something that you have to pray about and make sure God blesses it and you have to talk to the family, but right now they will be very supportive of doing something in that out-year cycle of 2016.
