Weiner Announces Campaign for Mayor

The New York Times reports that Anthony Weiner, "once a rising star of New York politics whose career cratered over revelations of his sexually explicit life online, announced an improbable bid on Wednesday for the job he has long coveted: mayor."

"After a rocky re-emergence into public life over the past few weeks, marked by circuslike scenes of tabloid photographers chasing him onto the subway, Mr. Weiner opted to declare his candidacy from the safe remove of a video."

A new Quinnipiac poll finds Christine Quinn leading the pack for the Democratic nomination with 25%, followed by Weiner at 15% with Bill de Blasio and William Thompson in a horse race for third place at 10% each.
