Anthony Weiner Backs Away From Mayoral Race


Representative Anthony Weiner, who had assured voters that he would run for mayor even if Michael Bloomberg aimed for a third term, has stepped back from that vow. He says he won’t decide until the springtime, because he’s too busy trying to solve Washington’s problems. “So you won’t see me holding campaign rallies,” he wrote in a letter to constituents. “You won’t see me knocking on doors asking for votes.” [NYT] Related: Will Weiner Blink?
