Allen West, the chairman of the Texas Republican Party, resigned on Friday and hinted that he would consider running for governor.

West “has submitted his irrevocable resignation to the officials’ meeting as of 8am CT today,” the Texas GOP said in a press release. “He will remain at the helm of the Texas GOP until a new Chairman can be selected on July 11th at an undetermined location as of now.”

West said in a statement that “it has been my distinct honor to serve as Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. I pray Godspeed for this governing body.”

In an interview about the announcement on WBAP radio, host Chris Salcedo asked West if he was planning to run for governor.

“Am I safe in assuming you are considering a run for governor?” Salcedo said.
