West wins Broward

Republican Allen West won the Broward portion of Congressional District 22 with 53.55 percent of the vote. West leads Democrat Ron Klein in Palm Beach 55 percent with less than half the precincts counted.

Total silence fell over the crowd at the Klein party when two jumbo screens showed live news cut to a feed from the West party. At West's party, they break into loud cheers every time a notable Republican appears on TV or sweeps another state.
