Turner is running against Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin to succeed former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) 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 possible bellwether of support for U.S. President Barack Obama. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
