WEST PALM BEACH (AP) – Former U.S. Congressman Allen West will soon be able to add television political contributor to his resume.

West is joining Fox News.

The network said West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide valuable insight.

The former Palm Beach area congressman, and Republican tea party favorite, narrowly lost his race for a second term to Patrick Murphy last November. West has said he has no interest in running against Murphy again in 2014 but he hasn’t entirely ruled out a run in another district.

West served in the United States Army for 22 years, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He is currently the director of Next Generation TV Programming.
