Tallahassee, FL - Democratic Congressman Ron Klein has lost his bid for a third term in a South Florida district.

Klein lost Tuesday to Allen West, a tough-talking retired Army lieutenant colonel from Deerfield Beach. He will become the first black Republican to represent Florida in Congress since the 1870s.

It was a rematch of their race two years ago in the 22nd District. Klein was an easy winner then, but West turned the tables this year on the Boca Raton lawyer.

With 80 percent of the expected vote counted, West had 55 percent while Klein had 45 percent.

The district is almost equally divided between Democrats and Republicans. Klein defeated longtime Republican Congressman Clay Shaw in 2006.

Klein was a good jew and perfect 100% pro israel record. the only difference between west's 08 campaign and 2010 was a youtube video talking about israel. tlak is cheap and actions speak louder than words. time for the army man to put his money where his mouth is. lets see him rack up a record as good as jewish democrat klein when it comes to israel.
