About Congressman Ted Deutch

From the Florida State Senate to the United States Congress, Ted Deutch has spent nearly a decade working for the people of Broward and Palm Beach counties. 

A devoted Democrat with a record of bipartisan collaboration in Congress, he is now seeking re-election in Florida's newly-redrawn 22nd congressional district, which runs  from Fort Lauderdale north to Boca Raton and westward to communities like Parkland, Margate, and Coral Springs.
