(TCPALM.COM) U.S. Rep. Allen West has conceded to Patrick Murphy in District 18 after presenting legal challenges on the race’s results for two weeks after Election Day.

West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, announced at 6:16 a.m. Tuesday that though he thinks there are more inaccuracies in his race’s results, they aren’t enough to sway the election in his favor.

The race between West and his Jupiter Democratic foe turned into one of the costliest and nastiest contests in the country.
