GOP Wins In NY House Race, Seen As Obama Rebuke

NEW YORK (AP) - The outcome of a special election in New York City may be a warning to the Obama administration of the political environment it's facing going into 2012.

Voters frustrated over the sour economy and President Barack Obama's policies have chosen a Republican to fill the congressional seat in a district dominated by Democratic voters. Republican political novice Bob Turner will fill the seat that was occupied by Democrat Anthony Weiner, who resigned over a sexting scandal.

He defeated David Weprin, a Democratic assemblyman from a prominent local political family.
Turner says his win is a "loud and clear" message to Obama.
