John Kline Buddying Up To Allen West Shows Just How Extreme Kline Really Is

February 18, 2014

Washington, D.C. – John Kline’s effort to cozy up to the extreme and reckless former Congressman Allen West in a joint appearance tonight proves that, approaching Election Day, Kline is ready to fully peel back the curtain on his Tea Party mentality. 

“As if John Kline’s record of shutting down the government, supporting an increase in student loan rates, voting to redefine rape and working to end Medicare as we know it weren’t enough to prove how out of touch Kline is with Minnesota, now Kline is cozying up to reckless Tea Party leader Allen West,” said Andy Stone, Communications Director for House Majority PAC. “He served just one term in Congress but Allen West is the very definition of Tea Party extremism – the very kind of radicalism that John Kline is embracing with abandon.”
