On July 7, Democrats chose Weprin as the Party's nominee to run in the special election set to fill Anthony Weiner's 9th District seat in Congress.[7] Weprin was defeated by Bob Turner in the special election on September 13, 2011.[8] Turner received 54% to Weprin's 46%.[9]

Currently, the 9th Congressional District includes Brooklyn and Queens; however, the district is in danger. Due to population losses, redistricting may eliminate the 9th district and two congressional seats. [7]
