After two weeks of tallying errors and irregularities, legal challenges, recounts and mysteriously discovered ballots, Florida Republican Allen West conceded his contentious House race to Democrat Patrick Murphy Tuesday morning.

Rep. Allen West (R-FL): We will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-elect Murphy.

Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” West reiterated his vow to remain a steadfast and loyal public servant.

West believes further legal action will do nothing to alter the outcome of the race and congratulated his opponent in a written statement.

West says there are “inaccuracies” in CD-18 votes, but “our legal team does not believe there are enough…to change the outcome.”

Allen West: “I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from 18th Congressional District.”

— George Bennett (@gbennettpost) November 20, 2012

While West graciously conceded to Murphy, he made it clear that he’s not conceding the fight for life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

Conceding West: “As I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic”
