Cultist Allen West Resigns As Chairman Of Texas GOP

The Texas Tribune reports:

Texas GOP Chairman Allen West announced his resignation Friday morning, raising speculation the conservative firebrand could be preparing a run for statewide office.

West, who has been at the helm of the state Republican party for just shy of a year, will remain chair until a successor is picked on July 11, the party said. “It has been my distinct honor to serve as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I pray Godspeed for this governing body,” he said in a statement.

Critics have speculated for months that West was misusing the job of state party chairman to make a name for himself, potentially laying the groundwork to run for another office. West has said he’s not ruled out challenging Gov. Greg Abbott, and he has also had tension recently with Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
