Klein Convincingly Wins Primary, Carries Momentum into General Election

Posted by Paige Bresky --email

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) ---Congressman Ron Klein (FL-22) easily won his primary tonight, spurred by strong support from across his district, and now will face Republican Allen West in the general election. Klein rallied supporters at his Pompano Beach campaign office.

"I am very grateful for the tremendous support from the people across the congressional district," Klein said. "This November voters have a clear choice. On one hand, my opponent is pushing an extreme agenda and follows the Sarah Palin model of divisive politics. On the other hand, I believe in bringing people together and turning their ideas into action."

The nonpartisan National Journal rated Congressman Klein a centrist this year based on his voted record, recognizing his independence.

"My top priority is creating jobs and I will not stop fighting until everyone in South Florida who wants a job, has a good quality job," Klein said. "I am working every day to move South Florida forward and find solutions to improve the lives of our families, students, small businesses, seniors and veterans. I look forward to continuing to meet and listen to people around the district in the coming months as we discuss the issues most important to strengthening our community."
