A week after he might have won the mayor’s race, Representative Anthony Weiner–whose district includes parts of Queens and Brooklyn–was on the steps of City Hall Sunday to talk about the health care bill that passed the House over the weekend. If he’s feeling any regrets about his decision to drop out of the mayor’s race in May, he’s not letting on.
“I think that I made the right decision, especially on a day like today–I would have been more than a little tormented being on the campaign trail running a campaign. I would have liked watching all of these things go on” in Washington, Weiner said.
As speculation swirls around what Bill Thompson might do next–or, say, in 2013–Mr. Weiner would only say,
“This is really, this is–we’re not even a week out. I think first and foremost he deserves credit for running a good campaign and deserves a little time off. But Billy has to answer for his own plans.”
