9th Congressional District
“We’ve been asked by this district to send a message to Washington, and I hope they hear it loud and clear,” Turner said.
Retired media executive and political novice Bob Turner defeated Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin in a special election Tuesday to succeed Rep. Anthony Weiner, a seven-term Democrat who resigned in June after a sexting scandal.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani campaigned with Republican congressional candidate Bob Turner on Monday, trying to augment his surprising lead in the polls in Weiner’s heavily Democratic 9th Congressional District.
A Siena Poll released Wednesday shows that Democrat David Weprin leads Republican Robert Turner 48 to 42 percent.
The special election for the 9th congressional district will be held on September 13 to coincide with the state’s primary elections.
