GOP wins in NY House race, seen as Obama rebuke

NEW YORK

Turner defeated Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin on Tuesday to succeed Anthony Weiner, who resigned amid a sexting scandal. It's the first time a Republican has been elected in the district.

Addressing jubilant supporters after his win, Turner said the people voted against what he called Democratic President Barack Obama's irresponsible fiscal policy.

Turner says the country is on the wrong track.
