He’s too New York to quit.
Anthony Weiner, in a new video posted on his campaign website Tuesday night, again vowed to stay in the race despite admitting last week he continued to exchange sexually explicit messages with women after he resigned from Congress.
“They don’t know New York. They certainly don’t know me. Quit isn’t the way we roll in New York City,” he says in the video, referencing calls from newspapers and other politicians for him to drop his mayoral bid.
“It’s really not about the campaign and not about the candidates, and this isn’t about me,” he continues. “This is about helping New Yorkers, because they understand this is about them.”
