Anthony Weiner will not drop out of the New York City mayoral race, saying Friday that neither he nor the press should decide whether his past precludes him from future public service.

"It's not up to you decide, it's not up to me decide, voters I want to make this decision," Weiner told a group of reporters at a press conference in Tottenville, Staten Island. "And they've got plenty of information on me to make it on, and I want to give them more every day."
