Donald Trump today endorsed Republican Bob Turner for Congress in this automated telephone call to voters in New York’s 9th Congressional District, which encompasses Queens and Brooklyn. (It’s the district recently represented by Anthony Weiner, who stepped down for his extra-curricular texts and tweets).
In his call to voters, Trump said: “I’m not calling to fire you, as we say on The Apprentice. I’m calling to fire you up.”

Though the race is in New York, it is considered a bellwether in some political circles, and to have some national implications as the Congress and the country battle over debt, deficits and the future of this country.
Turner is running against state Assemblyman David Weprin, a Democrat.
