Florida's 22nd District runs along the state's Gold Coast, stretching from Fort Lauderdale in Broward County to Jupiter in Palm Beach County. Historically, it has been chiefly Democratic, with Shaw succeeding there because of his support of popular local issues, like Everglades restoration. In 2000, however, Shaw barely beat challenger Elaine Bloom, by 599 votes. Republicans responded by redistricting Shaw's seat, replacing the Democratic-heavy area in the south with more Republican-friendly zones in the north. In the past two elections, Shaw has won by double-digit margins. Still, many consider the district a tossup. It is white and wealthy, with few Hispanics but a large influx of liberal to moderate retirees, many of whom are Jewish, like Klein, and hail from northeastern states. The heavy flow of newcomers also dilutes the traditional advantages of incumbency.
