Bob Turner stuns Weprin in New York City, Weiner's old district

I seldom post election coverage here as it is usually blanket covered on so many other sites. This one is maybe VERY SPECIAL and is total rejection of ALL THINGS obama. This defeat was in the heavily Jewish district 9. Many of these Jews were absolutely disgusted by the first illegal alien muslim potus sell out and back stabbing of Israel. Weprin also cooked his goose by supporting extreme gay rights and marriage which many voters in this district do not approve of. The district also has a very strong population of Orthodox Catholics and is one the most conservative districts in NYC.

The election has been called for Turner with over 60% of the precincts reporting in.

While I am not a huge supporter of all things Republican (I am a Constitutional Conservative and a very extremely conservative one at that) this is a big blow to obama and the far left libtards and their disgusting march to socialism. We can only hope this is just the start of a Conservative backlash back to the founding roots of our country.


REPUBLICAN WINS!! New York 9 Special Election – The Race to Replace Weiner …Update: With 60% of Precincts Reporting Republican Turner Leads 53-46

Tonight is the special election in New York 9 – The district formerly held by Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Democrats spent Tuesday in a last-ditch effort to stave off a loss.
The Politico reported:

NEW YORK – Democrats here spent Tuesday in the final throes of a frantic, last-ditch effort to stave off a loss in the special election race to replace Anthony Weiner.

Democrat David Weprin, trailing Republican Bob Turner in multiple polls, raced to half a dozen campaign stops, imploring voters at senior centers and subway stops to cast their ballots for him.

Party officials say their best hope for winning lies on the shoulders of the vaunted Queens County Democratic Party machine, which kicked into high gear Tuesday. Inside its headquarters — which doubles as the Weprin campaign’s nerve center — get-out-the vote workers rushed to pick up manila folders containing block-by-block layouts of the district; others sat at the phones, methodically working through voter-contact lists. Volunteers fanned out across Queens, handing out glossy placards highlighting Weprin’s endorsement from the New York Times editorial page.

Despite the last-minute Democratic push, the GOP appeared poised to capture the 9th District seat – an upset that would signal a rejection of President Barack Obama on his party’s turf and underscore the peril that he and Democrats up and down the ballot could face in 2012.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said in a meeting with reporters, “The race is closer than we would like.”

Republican Bob Turner told ABC News that he has obtained a court order to seal all paper ballots in New York’s 9th Congressional District, pending judicial review.
