Bob Turner on New York Special Election Results: "The numbers keep coming in stronger and stronger" UPDATE: Turner Wins by Joel B. Pollak 13 Sep 2011 post a comment Share This: A moment ago, I spoke to Republican Bob Turner, who holds a small lead over Democrat David Weprin in the special election to replace Anthony Weiner in New York's 9th district. "The results are coming in very positively, and there's a strong sense of optimism and confidence right now. It looks very good," he told me, as he prepared to join supporters at a campaign party.

We were ready for a party, or a wake. The numbers keep coming in stronger and stronger, and we're feeling pretty good." As of 10:55 p.m. Eastern time, Turner was up 51%-49%, leading Weprin by a wide margin in Brooklyn and trailing slightly in Queens, with just over 20 percent of precincts reporting overall.
