Allen West knows time is short

Allen West believes Republicans have no more than six months to prove to voters that they can get things done.

The newley elected congressman is the featured guest on this week's To the Point on WPTV-NewsChannel 5.

West says his new Republican colleagues have "90 to 120 days to show some of the key things we are doing to move in the right direction. People are not very patient right now."

And like many of the newly elected freshman, West will be confronting a reelection campaign in a matter of months. That's bound to add to the pressure to get something done and get it done quickly.

In addition, the district West ran in this time is going to be different when Florida legislature changes the congressional district lines in 2012 adding to the uncertainty.

Who knows, maybe Democrat Ron Klein will come back for a rematch.  

See West and Crowley Political Report Sunday at 10 a.m. on To the Point.
