I'll Take Manhattan

Well, Queens and Brooklyn anyway.

Retired Republican businessman Bob Turner upset Democrat State Assemblyman David Weprin 54-46% to fill New York's Ninth Congressional District, the seat vacated in July by disgraced Democrat Congressman Anthony Weiner. The seat had been held by Democrats for over 80 years.

True, it was a special election, under unusual circumstances, with small turnout.

But a win's a win and, we hope, a weather vane.
