Poignant Analysis from DNC Chair

As you have heard by now, Robert Turner, Republican, defeated David Weprin, Democrat, for the N.Y. Congressional seat previously held by Anthony Weiner. This remarkable feat happened notwithstanding the fact that:

  • Democrats outnumber Republicans by a margin of more than 3 to 1.
  • The District overwhelmingly voted for Obama in 2008.
  • The Democrats outspent the Republican candidate by a significant amount.
  • The district has voted Democrat since 1923!
  • The Democrats called in former President Bill Clinton and Governor Andrew Cuomo to garner support.

What is even more remarkable is the statement by Debbie Wasserman Schultz:”It’s a difficult seat for Democrats.” This brilliant statement came from the Democratic National Committee Chairperson who represents Weston, Florida.
