Texas GOP Chairman Allen West announced his resignation Friday as he considers a run for elected office, according to reports.
“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 release, according to FOX 7 in Austin.
He joked he might run for “dog catcher” before telling reporters he was looking at a statewide office or even a congressional run.
“There’s a guy in Texas 32 I really don’t care for being my congressional representative,” he said, referring to U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, a Democrat.
