Weiner could declare=Former Rep. Anthony Weiner is apparently close to making his run for New York City mayor official.
According to WNBC-TV, the former congressman was spotted filming what appeared to be a campaign ad on the front steps of his childhood home in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on Thursday. Weiner was joined by his wife, Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
According to NBC, the entourage quickly packed up and left when reporters approached, and Weiner did not respond to a request for comment.
The apparent ad comes amid speculation that Weiner could announce his bid for mayor as soon as next week. The ex-lawmaker was forced out of Congress nearly two years ago when he was busted sexting with women who were not his wife.
Last month, Weiner kicked off a very public amends tour, giving an interview to The New York Times magazine in which he asked the public for a “second chance” and called the upcoming mayoral race a case of “now or maybe never for me.”
