Weiner not running for mayor

May 27, 2009 3:51:05 PM PDT
Democrat Anthony Weiner is backing away from the race to challenge Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He says the billionaire's riches make it impossible to have a fair fight. Bloomberg has spent more than $18 million since January. That's nearly double what he had spent by this point in his re-election campaign four years ago.

Weiner says he has so much work to do as a congressman in Washington that he can't devote the effort it would take to beat Bloomberg.

He joins several others who have left the race since Bloomberg changed term-limits law so that he could run again.
