From Capital Tonight:
A Democratic source has confirmed that Assemblyman David Weprin is going to be the Democrats candidate in the special election for NY-9, the seat that is vacant following Anthony Weiner’s resignation.
Weprin is going to be meeting with Democrats in the district tonight and the paperwork certifying him as the candidate will be filed tomorrow.
The source tells CapTon that Weprin was picked because he is the “most loyal” to the Queens Democratic party – which basically picks the candidate for the special election because close to 70% of the weighted vote is in Queens.
And as predicted, they picked Goldfeder for Pheffer's assembly seat.
