Weiner Struggles to Assemble Campaign Team

As former Rep. Anthony Weiner "prepares to roll out a long-shot bid for mayor, possibly as soon as next week, he is finding it difficult to attract prominent operatives, interviews suggest," the New York Times reports.

"Recruiting top talent is a perennial challenge in politics, but Mr. Weiner faces daunting obstacles."

"He is considering an unusually late entry into a race that is already filled with Democrats who long ago snapped up big-name campaign directors. He is known as an excessively demanding, at times confrontational boss. And he is still recovering from an embarrassing scandal, during which he misled the public and his own staff about whether he had sent sexually explicit messages and graphic images to women he had met online."
