Weiner Rejects Calls To Withdraw From NYC Mayoral Race

The field of democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race will have Anthony Weiner to bully during the race.      

The scandal-plagued former representative is back on the campaign trail just one day after revealing he continued "sexting" long after the same lewd behavior forced him to resign from congress.

He remains defiant despite calls that he drop out of the race. But while he tries to focus on his campaign, it’s proving tough escaping the scandal.

CNN’s Dana Bash asks New Yorkers if the scandal bothers them, and the feelings are mixed.

One man says, "No, I mean, a lot of politicians have their issues and I think this one we can put behind us.”

But another New Yorker disagrees.

“I think it's kind of creepy," says one woman, "so I don't think I'd want that as my mayor.”
