Six years after leaving his corporate career behind, he entered politics with the goal of defeating Democratic Representative Anthony Weiner in the November 2010 election. He only received 39 percent of the vote, which was not enough to win the election for him. In a special election held after Anthony Weiner resigned from his seat as a result of a sexting controversy, Republican Bob Turner was victorious over Democratic challenger David Weprin, garnering 52 percent of the vote to Weprin’s 47 percent.
