Allen West conceded in the District 18 race against Patrick Murphy Tuesday morning.

After West released a statement congratulating Murphy, the Congressman-elect issued his own statement.

"I appreciate Congressman West's gracious concession today. I am truly humbled that the voters of the 18th district have entrusted me to represent them in Washington.  To those who supported my opponent, my door is open and I want to hear your voice.  I campaigned on a message of reaching across the aisle to get things done for the people of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, and that is as important in this district as it is in Washington.  I am excited and honored to get to work."
