NEW YORK (AP) - New York Democratic leaders have chosen a state Assemblyman from Queens as their candidate to replace Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned last month after a sexting scandal. Assemblyman David Weprin will compete for the seat in a Sept. 13 special election. Republicans are expected to choose a candidate to compete in the special election, but no Republican has ever won the seat.
