Former Rep. Allen West speaks at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference. West will talk to Northwestern students next week at Harris Hall as College Republicans’ fall speaker.

College Republicans will bring former Rep. Allen West to Northwestern next week as its fall speaker, the organization announced Tuesday night.

West, the firebrand Florida Republican who was elected to Congress during the tea party wave of 2010 and lost his seat in a close 2012 race, will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 at Harris Hall. A question-and-answer session will follow the speech.

During his two years in Washington, D.C., West became the first black Republican to represent Florida in Congress since 1876.

Prior to entering politics, West spent 22 years in the military. He served overseas during the Gulf War and recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also a contributor to Fox News.

Other speakers at College Republicans events have included commentator Dinesh D’Souza, former presidential candidate Herman Cain and the late publisher and author Andrew Breitbart.
