PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Down to the wire and on the heels of Election night, Ron Klein greeted people at a local Publix while Allen West held a rally at his headquarters in Deerfield Beach.
It was standing room only at Allen West headquarters. He spoke to the crowd thanking them for their support.
"When you lay your heads down at night you will never worry about the decisions Allen West will make while in DC.," West told his supporters.
Currently polls show West in the lead over his opponent Ron Klein.
"It's a very close race and you know at this point all it is is getting out to vote," says Klein.
Monday he greeted customers of a grocery store hoping to turn the polls and voters in his favor. "I think it'll be a close shave but we'll be successful."
Of course the economy is the biggest issue facing voters and their candidates. West saying jobs created by the government does more damage than good while Klein believes in cutting taxes for small businesses.
"If government is creating jobs that means less money in the pockets of Americans," says West, "We've got to look at our tax structure, we've got to look at our corporate business tax structure."
"I don't believe in just giving out tax cuts. You create a job you get a tax cut, you create 10 jobs you get a bigger tax cut," says Klein.
It's no secret that negative ads have saturated the media. In one ad run by Klein it portrays West as an extremist.
"My opponent has a different view of how to get things done, he's very extreme to this community," said Klein.
Allen West fired back summing up his opponents comments and ads in one word. "Nuts."
Both candidates will be in Boca Raton watching the numbers come in.
