Florida's 22nd congressional district is an electoral district for the U.S. Congress, located in southeast Florida.[1][2] Based in South Florida, the district encompasses the coastline from northern Broward County to the northern end of Palm Beach County, with a long finger jutting out into the northeastern part of Palm Beach County encompassing West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens and another finger encompassing Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, and Coconut Creek. A large majority of the city of Fort Lauderdale is included in the district, though part of the city is in Florida's 23rd congressional district. Also included in the district are the towns of Oakland Park and part of Cooper City.

Democrat Lois Frankel currently represents the district.

History[edit]

The 22nd Congressional District was created after the 1990 U.S. Census. Republican E. Clay Shaw, Jr. was elected in the first election in the district in 1992 and was reelected for six terms until he lost to Democrat Ron Klein in 2006. Klein served for two terms before being defeated by Republican Allen West in 2010 in one of the most expensive U.S. House campaigns for both parties that year.

The 22nd Congressional District was the center of the disputed 2000 presidential election in Florida and the ensuing recount.
