Weiner in new NY campaign ad: I won't quit

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner has released a new campaign video saying he won't quit the race.

The 1 minute video was posted on his campaign's website Tuesday evening. Speaking directly into the camera, the former congressman addresses politicians and newspaper editors who have said he should quit.

He says they don't know New York or him and that quitting isn't what New Yorkers do, they "fight through tough things."

Last week, Weiner acknowledged exchanging sexually explicit messages online after similar behavior spurred his resignation from Congress in 2011. He says in the video that when "embarrassing" things in a person's private life become public, the person should talk about it.

A new poll released Monday found Weiner's support fell from 26 percent last week to 16 percent.
