Allen West moves out of Broward

It's official: Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West no longer lives in Broward. West is now a resident of Palm Beach Gardens. His spokeswoman wouldn't say whether West bought a home or is renting.

"We do not discuss the personal details of his residence," Angela Melvin wrote in an email.

We didn't find any home purchase in Palm Beach County online records.

West had been living in Plantation just outside his Congressional District 22 which spans Broward and Palm Beach. Due to redistricting, West is now running in District 18 which is to the north of his current district and more favorable to a Republican.   

West is expected to face Democrat Patrick Murphy who is renting a residence in Jupiter.
