Republican businessman Bob Turner won Anthony Weiner's seat late last night.

This morning, Turner was leading by eight points, with 84 percent of the vote, according to the Associated Press, beatingDemocrat Assemblyman David Weprin.

The race was tight in recent days, with Turner leading Weprin by six points Monday.

But the results may not even really matter: The district might not be around much longer — it is in danger of being cut when New York loses two House seats.

 

And Weiner already left the borough. The former congressman was spotted Tuesday moving out of his two-bedroom in Forrest Hills. The New York Post reported that he is upgrading to a three-bedroom apartment on a pricey West Village street.

Weiner did make time to vote, offering his support for Weprin.

Weiner, who was once a top contender for mayor, resigned in June after admitting that he sent sexually explicit messages to several women through Twitter.
