    One surprise win deserves another. After shocking many with a win in the 9th Congressional District last year, U.S. Rep. Bob Turner (R-Middle Village) was defeated by the conservative party candidate, Manhattan lawyer Wendy Long in a three-way Republican primary Tuesday. Long will now square off against U.S. Sen.

    Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has decided not to run for the Senate seat held by Kirsten E. Gillibrand, Republicans briefed on his decision said Monday evening. The decision by Mr. Giuliani, 65, leaves Senator Gillibrand — who was appointed to her seat less than a year ago, has never run in a statewide election, and is still unfamiliar to many voters — without a high-profile Republican opponent as she faces election to the seat. As recently as a week ago, a Quinnipiac University poll showed Mr. Giuliani leading Ms. Gillibrand in a hypothetical matchup, 50 percent to 40 percent....
