Anthony Weiner has put out a new online ad defending his decision to stay in the mayor's race despite the latest sexting scandal that has rocked his campaign.
In the ad, Weiner says that calls from other candidates and the media for him to quit the race do a disservice to New Yorkers.
"Quit isn't the way we roll in New York City. We fight through tough things, we are a tough city. There are people all around the city with a tough day ahead of them and they don't quit," Weiner said. "But it's really not about the campaign and it's not about the candidates and it's not about me. This is about helping New Yorkers because they understand this is about them."
Weiner's poll numbers took a steep drop after he admitted last week that he shared explicit online messages with another woman more than a year after he resigned from Congress over a sexting scandal.
His campaign manager resigned over the weekend after the new revelations came to light.
