Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West was released from the hospital Monday after contracting covid-19.
West, the former head of the Texas Republican Party, said on Saturday his chest x-rays showed he had “COVID pneumonia.” West’s wife tested positive for covid-19 on Friday, and West himself felt “a low grade fever and body aches.”
Angela West got the vaccine. Allen West did not.
He was ultimately admitted to the hospital, and there was some concern about his oxygen saturation levels.
He also made a point of tweeting over the weekend that he still opposes vaccine mandates. West said, “Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy.”
