Anthony Weiner


Republican Bob Turner, with voters dealing a rebuke to President Barack Obama in a traditionally Democratic district, won the New York City House seat that scandal forced Anthony Weiner to give up.

The Associated Press reported that with 88 percent of the vote counted in yesterday’s special election, Turner had 54 percent and Democrat David Weprin had 46 percent.

“I think it’s a big red flag,” Stu Rothenberg, editor of the Washington-based Rothenberg Political Report, said of the New York election results. “The ramifications go well beyond Queens and Brooklyn.”

He called it “a warning sign that voters who are dissatisfied with the direction of the country may well be more likely to take it out on the president and his party than on congressional Republicans.”

Rothenberg said Democrat Weprin “didn’t run a great race,” but “even a weak Democratic candidate should be able to hold it against a mediocre Republican.”

Hope this isn’t a sign of what’s to come in 2012…
