For the first time since 1920, voters in New York's 9th Congressional District elected a Republican to Congress today.  Once counting has ended, it looks like the GOP nominee will win 53-47%. Pretty impressive considering registered Democrats number  almost 196,000 while there are only 62,000 Republicans and 85,000 independents . This is Anthony Weiner's district – he averaged 70+% when he had a challenger. It was Chuck Schumer's district before that.

Since 1857, the GOP has held the seat in its various incarnations a total of 9 out of the past 154 years. They won't hold it for long, though. This makes the decision about the two seats New York legislators must eliminate due to the 2010 census a lot easier.
