Republican Takes Weiner NYC Seat

Bob Turner, center, joined by his wife Peggy, right, and family smiles as he delivers his victory speech during an election night party Wednesday in New York. Turner says his win in a heavily Democratic New York City district is a "loud and clear" message to Washington. Turner defeated Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin on Tuesday to succeed Anthony Weiner who resigned amid a sexting scandal. It's the first time a Republican has been elected in the district.

Question: A Republican also won a special election in Nevada. Does this spell trouble for the Democrats?
