Firebrand Florida Republican congressional candidate Allen West is maintaining his distance from the GOP establishment. He feels more kinship with the tea party movement, Poltico reports.

It’s what we call in the military, boilerplate.”

And West says that he’s going to take the party leadership to task if he gets elected. “If John Boehner is speaker, I’m going to hold his feet to the fire,” West says. “And I think that’s important. And that’s what people are expecting of me down here.”
