Cuomo Calls For Special Election To Fill Seat Left Vacant By Former Rep. Anthony Weiner
The special election for the 9th Congressional District will be held on September 13 to coincide with the state’s primary elections.
Among the Democrats said to want Weiner’s seat include former NYC Council members Eric Gioia and Melinda Katz and current councilman Mark Weprin. Councilman Eric Ulrich is considered a possible GOP contender.
In addition to the 9th Congressional District, there are six Assembly districts with vacancies that need to be filled.
The election for those seats, which are in Oneida County, Erie County, Brooklyn, Manhattan and two in Queens, will also be held on September 13.
