Vice President Joe Biden reportedly took a hit at former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) Thursday during a rooftop party for Rep. Patrick Murphy, who defeated West in the 2012 election.
"I’d like to say to all of you, you did the country a favor," Biden told the crowd at Murphy’s party, according to TCPalm.
Tea party firebrand Rep. Allen West conceded his re-election fight Tuesday, two weeks after the election gave way to court appearances, two partial recounts and unending accusations by his camp that the vote count wasn’t fair.
