Weprin Drops Out of Debate in N.Y. Special

Tom Williams/Roll Call
Republican Bob Turner (above) will face Democratic state Assemblyman David Weprin in the Sept. 13 special election for New York's 9th district.

“I may be a novice in politics, but I’m not crazy enough to go out on a dead issue that is a year old and condemn [9/11] volunteers,” he said.

Turner and Weprin are squaring off in the Sept. 13 special election to fill the seat of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D), who resigned earlier this year after an embarrassing scandal over sexual communications with women through social media.

A headline on the Daily News’s website summed up the paper’s opinion of both candidates: “Candidates in [C]ongressional special election are enough to make voters yearn for Anthony Weiner.”
