Anthony Weiner’s Mayoral Bid

Nearly two years after he resigned from Congress because of a high profile sexting scandal, Anthony Weiner has tossed his hat into the race for New York City Mayor. Weiner, whose campaign focuses on helping the middle class thrive, is quickly gaining steam in the polls. After only a week of officially being in the race, Weiner is trailing frontrunner Christine Quinn by just 5% for the Democratic nomination, according to a Marist survey. BTR Pulse’s Lauren Hawker asks New Yorkers how they feel about Weiner’s viability as a candidate, especially in light of his past negative publicity.
