Video: Weiner releases TV ad for some reason

“I’ve waged a campaign focused like a laser beam on fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it,” says Mr. Weiner as images of his enthusiastic reception on the campaign trail play over his shoulder.

While he doesn’t directly address the sexting revelations that have imperiled his comeback candidacy, the former congressman continues to play defense, painting himself as the anti-establishment pick in the race for mayor.

“Look, powerful voices have made it clear from the very beginning they didn’t want me to win. But this isn’t about what they want,” he says. “They’ve gotten their away far too long. if you give me the chance, I will fight for you and your family every single day.”
