Republican Leads in Weiner Election

It looks like Rep. Anthony Weiner might have lost the Democrats a seat in the House. The Republican candidate, Bob Turner, has a strong lead going into Tuesday's special election to replace the disgraced congressman. Fifty percent of likely voters in New York's ninth congressional district support Turner, while only 44 percent support Assemblyman David Weprin, the Democratic candidate. Weprin was the strong favorite to win. The district has three registered Democrats for every Republican voter, and Weiner defeated Turner by 22 percent last year. Turner framed the special election as a referendum on President Obama.
