Weiner: Quit isn't the way we roll in New York City

Anthony Weiner released a new video tonight, rejecting calls to withdraw from the New York City mayoral race.

Despite dropping to 4th place in new polls after acknowledging he exchanged lewd messages with as many three women since he resigned from Congress, Weiner remains adamant that he's in it for the long-haul:

Weiner has been enduring questions about his sexting scandal at every public event since his latest disclosure.

Source: Clintons livid with Weiner personally

President Barack Obama had lunch Monday with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A White House spokesman said friendship was the only thing on the agenda.

Erin Burnett highlights the timing and says "we have to wonder whether the two caught up on the scandal that's engulfed the woman Clinton has called a 'second daughter.'

Clinton's long-time aide Huma Abedin, wife of New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner. A source close to Bill and Hillary Clinton tells CNN's Jessica Yellin that the couple is "livid" with Weiner but strictly on a personal front.

The Clintons, we're told, are angry only at how Weiner treated Abedin. They aren't angry at all about how Weiner's sexting scandal could impact Clinton's potential 2016 presidential bid, as some have claimed.

Anthony Weiner remains defiant amid sexting scandal

At a press conference this afternoon, candidate for New York City Mayor and former Representative Anthony Weiner answered questions about his sexting scandal.

Reporter: How many conversations did you have with women after you resigned that were sexual in nature?

Weiner: I don't believe I had any more than three.

Any more than three.

That may sound like strange response but maybe the strangest part is that he's still in the race at all.

Tom Foreman is OutFront with the story.

Sexting scandal puts Weiner's wife in the spotlight

CNN has now learned the identity of the woman Anthony Weiner, also known as Carlos Danger online, sent lewd images to after he resigned from Congress - for sending lewd images to women.

Weiner's more recent online paramour has been identified by an acquaintance as 23-year-old Sydney Elaine Leathers of Evansville, Indiana.

Weiner insists he's staying in the race for New York City's mayor, despite calls for him to drop out from two of the city's major newspapers - the New York Times and the New York Daily News.

However, the person that everyone is most obsessed with, isn't Anthony Weiner. It's his, wife Huma Abedin, who made it clear Tuesday, she's not going anywhere.

"Anthony's made some horrible mistakes both before he resigned from Congress and after - but I do strongly believe that it's between us and our marriage," Abedin said.

Why did she make that decision?

Alina Cho spoke with some of the people who know her best.
