David Weprin, Democratic candidate to fill the House seat vacated by Anthony Weiner in Brooklyn/Queens. He's running in a close race against Bob Turner. Weprin will be a solid vote on issues that matter: pro-Social Security, pro-Medicare, pro-choice and pro-marriage-equality. The latest from his opponent? He thinks the 9/11 Zadroga Health Act shouldn’t cover the volunteer workers hurt that day; he wants to decimate Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid. And he's the darling of The Tea Party. The news media is already looking at this race as a bellwether of 2012 -- as goes Brooklyn and Queens, so goes the nation. Questions?

Weprin may pretend he doesn't know Obama, but why is Organizing for America essentially running his campaign?
