“There is a groundswell spreading across these United States, ” according to Allen West, “Conservatives have the wind at our backs as it becomes more clear to more Americans that the progressive policies of this administration are destroying this nation. The Allen West Guardian fund is committed to electing strong, principled veteran and minority candidates who will preserve our constitutional foundation, limit the growth of government to promote individual prosperity and ensure our national security.”
The Allen West Guardian Fund was established in January of 2013 as a Political Action Committee (PAC) to support conservative military veteran and minority Republicans running for state and federal office. It furthers the mission of the leadership PAC Colonel West established while in Congress during the 2012 election cycle which helped 7 military veteran candidates win their seats in the House of Representatives.
