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

(CNN) – New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner is rejecting calls to withdraw his bid again in a new video posted to his campaign website Tuesday night.

Despite dropping to fourth place in a recent poll amid new sexting revelations, Weiner remains adamant that he's staying in.

"Sometimes people say to me this campaign is pretty rough, you may want to quit," he says in the video, looking directly at the camera. "I know that there are newspaper editors, other politicians that say, boy I wish that guy Weiner would quit."

"You don't know New York. You certainly don't know me," he added. "Quit isn't the way we roll in New York City."

Weiner has been enduring questions about his sexting scandal at every public event since his disclosure last week that he continued to exchange messages with multiple women after his 2011 resignation from Congress.

Tuesday's video marks his latest vow to continue pushing forward with his campaign.

New York City's primary is September 10.

    Sure. Why not stay in? It's hard to imagine what this guy's going to do with his life once he's lost, so it's not as if he's turning down offers.

    I'm not surprised Weiner won't quit. He wouldn't quit sexting. Why should he quit seeking attention & "glory" in an election?

    Anthony Weiner, you are proving to be a fighter, and you do not back down easily, that is what New Yorkers need. At least you did not go out and sleep with various women and bring a disease or baby back home. Look at how awful Giuliani treated his wife while he was cheating on her. Your private life is between you and your wife, no one should question that. The very people questioning you or your wife, probably have a spouse at home doing things they no nothing about, and if they know, they probably forgave them. Run Anthony run.
