Klein inches up in his own poll

Is the race between Republican U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw and Democratic state Sen. Ron Klein getting tighter?

A poll released Thursday by Klein's campaign suggests he's gaining ground. The poll shows Klein leading Shaw 43 to 42 percent, said Klein's campaign spokesman, Brian Smoot. That's a major uptick from August, when the campaign's polling showed Shaw leading Klein 48 to 41 percent, Smoot said. Shaw's campaign counters that their own polling disputes those numbers, and that a poll released by the candidate himself isn't trustworthy. Read more here.

Meanwhile, Shaw got a boost Wednesday when former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani stumped on his behalf in Palm Beach Gardens. See the story here.
