WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Conservative Republican Rep. Allen West is still fighting for votes two days after Election Day. But now he's doing it in the courtroom.

West is the tea party-idol from South Florida who found himself 2,456 votes behind Democratic rival Patrick Murphy in Tuesday's unofficial tally. But he has cited "disturbing irregularities" at the polls and his campaign is due in a West Palm Beach courtroom on Friday to ask that ballots and voting machines be impounded.

West's contest is among eight House races from coast to coast where The Associated Press has yet to call a winner because the margins are too slender and votes are still being counted.

There are still three contests without a winner in California, two in Arizona and one each in North Carolina and Utah.
