"Retired businessman Bob Turner of Breezy Point won the special election to replace Anthony Weiner as congressman for the 9th District Tuesday, defeating state Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Little Neck) and putting the seat in Republican hands for the first time since the 1920s. Turner took 54 percent of the vote, compared to 46 percent for Weprin, according to preliminary results, completing a stunning come-from-behind victory in a race that had garnered national attention. Running on a platform that focused on cutting federal spending by as much as 35 percent over 10 years and restructuring Social Security and Medicare for future retirees in order to keep the programs solvent, Turner had framed the race as a referendum on the Obama presidency. Weprin tried to paint Turner as a radical Tea Party Republican whose views are out of line with the people of the district. Turner also backs Second Amendment gun rights, while Weprin is pro-gun control; Turner is pro-life and Weprin pro-choice on abortion; and Turner is against any tax hikes on income and capital gains, while Weprin backs increasing rates on high earners to help close the federal deficit. Another key element in the race was each candidate's support of Israel and Obama policy toward the Jewish state. The 9th Congressional District has the highest percentage of Jewish voters of any district in the country..." Upset!
