Weprin is running against Republican Bob Turner to succeed Democrat Anthony Weiner who resigned in June after admitting he sent partially nude photos of himself to women via the Internet. The race has received strong media attention as it is being viewed as a bellwether of support for President Barack Obama and Washington. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
