NEW YORK - Republicans won an upset victory in a Democratic stronghold in New York on Tuesday in a special US House of Representatives election for the seat vacated by former Representative Anthony Weiner, who resigned after a Twitter sex scandal.

Republican Bob Turner, a retired media executive who called the election a referendum on US President Barack Obama, defeated Democrat David Weprin, a state assemblyman, a New York cable television station said.
