Latest NYT projections: Rivera in Miami-Dade, West in Broward

The NYT projected election results, based on "polling, expert forecasts, fundraising, past election returns and other indicators" suggest a GOP sweep in the two contested South Florida congressional seats.

The paper has Republican Allen West toppling the Democratic incumbent Rep. Ron Klein, 51.4 percent to 48.6 percent.

And it's got Republican David Rivera besting Democrat Joe Garcia 51.4 percent to 45.9 percent. They're waging war for an open seat that was vacated by Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart.
