West Palm Beach Mayor Running Against Allen West

March 21, 2011
She could face a crowded field for the Democratic nomination. Businessman Patrick Murphy announced his candidacy last week, and Israel met with West Palm Beach Tax Collector Ann Gannon. Former Rep. Ron Klein (D), who lost to West last year, hasn't ruled out running again either, but he recently took a job with a lobbying firm. West won the bitterly-contested race against Klein in 2010 with 54 percent of the vote -- in a district that backed President Obama in 2008 The swing district, though, is likely to be altered in the upcoming redistricting. The National Republican Congressional Committee was quick to seize on Frankel's potential flaws--including a Palm Beach Post editorial that slammed her management style during her time in City Hall. The scathing column said she presided over an "abusive work environment that penalizes opposing opinions" and calling her leadership style "scatterbrained." "If career politician Lois Frankel is said to be abusive to her own employees, one can only imagine how abusive she could be to her constituents who are suffering from a dismal economy," said NRCC spokeswoman Joanna Burgos. "During our current economic crisis, South Floridians need a representative who will listen to them, cut wasteful spending and spur job creation, not someone who can be 'an obstacle' and a 'threat' to South Florida families."
