German anti-euro party eyes first seats in western state

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's euroskeptic Alternative for Germany (AfD) party may win seats in its first western state on Sunday, buoyed by worries Greece's new anti-austerity government could unleash a fresh wave of turmoil in the euro zone.

The right-leaning AfD, which was founded in early 2013 to oppose euro zone bailouts, has been polling between 3 and 6 percent ahead of Sunday's vote in the northern city-state of Hamburg, the first of two regional elections in Germany this year.
