Priceless: Democrat Running For Weiner's Seat Refuses To Endorse Obama's Reelection

State Assemblyman David Weprin says he will tell his position on Obama after his election. it looks like Queens is about to get another weener for a representitive.
The Democratic candidate seeking to fill the congressional seat vacated by randy ex-Rep Anthony Weiner distanced himself from President Obama today — by refusing to say whether he backed the president’s re-election.

“I’m running myself right now. On Sept. 14, I’ll be happy to address the president’s election,” State Assemblyman David Weprin said following a press conference at Queens Borough Hall, where he was endorsed by a bevy of female elected leaders.

The special election to replace Weiner — who resigned in disgrace following a sexting scandal — will be held on Sept. 13.

“Don’t read anything into it,” Weprin insisted of his refusal to give fellow Democrat Obama a thumbs up.

Bob Turner, who challenged Weiner last year, is the Republican candidate.
