Listen folks, I live in the 9th District. Weprin ran a half-assed, unmotivated, uninvolved campaign. He failed to focus on the economic times and the ridiculous positions of Turner. He skipped out on planned meetings, he failed to squash the utter lunacy of turning the election into a referendum on international affairs, and he simply failed to show any great interest in winning. So......he lost.
I predict a stronger, more committed, more focused Democratic candidate will easily win back the seat for the Democrats in 2012...if the seat even exists after redistricting.
Hey, look at that! Someone who lives in the district pretty much saying what I just said after doing some reading and critical thinking! It's almost as if the Republican party and the mainstream had absolutely no idea what the **** they're talking about!
I guess you missed the part where the guy who actually lives in that district explained how you, the Republican party and the mainstream media have no idea what you're talking about.
