Anthony Weiner continued to plow ahead with his increasingly embattled mayoral campaign this evening, telling the audience at a forum in Queens that he’ll be the next man running City Hall.
“You watch, when I become your mayor–like I said, you might not agree with me every day–but every single day when I lay down my head at night I’m gonna be thinking of communities like this,” he said during his closing remarks at the forum, which ironically focused on women.
Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer made his first official campaign stop in more than two weeks this morning, greeting commuters in a frenzied appearance outside a subway station in Jackson Heights, Queens.
Mr. Spitzer, bursting with energy, handed out campaign fliers, cornered commuters, shook hands and bounded into traffic more than once—stopping buses, livery cars and even a North Shore ambulance as he touted his unexpected campaign for comptroller under the elevated 7-train track.
