Allen West Patrick Murphy race: Protesters continue to fight the results of the District 18 election

FORT PIERCE, Fla.-- Local members of the VFW in Saint Lucie County are expected to protest outside the Supervisor of Elections Office Tuesday morning.

At least a dozen local veterans protested along the street Monday night.

Some say they fear their votes weren't counted in the race between Rep. Allen West and Patrick Murphy.

The county held a recount over the weekend, with West coming out with a few hundred more votes than before. Despite the change in results, Murphy still came out victorious.

More protesters are expected to show up Tuesday morning than on Monday. They say they'll arrive around 10 a.m.
