Weiner Stays Out of Race
May 26th, 2009

City Hall News is reporting that Rep. Anthony Weiner will not run for mayor this year, leaving only Comptroller William Thompson Jr. and Councilmember Tony Avella in the Democratic primary.

The news is attributing Weiner’s bow out to a “source with knowledge of the decision.”

The Democratic victor will face a seriously uphill battle against Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the general election this fall.
