Allen West, the former Texas GOP chairman who is challenging Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) in the Republican gubernatorial primary, announced on Twitter Saturday that he and his wife had tested positive for Covid-19. West, who is unvaccinated, tweeted that he had developed “COVID pneumonia” and was “probably” going to be admitted to the hospital because his oxygen saturation levels were too low.

West said that he was “already taking Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin protocols,” and added a “CLARIFICATION”
