And anthony weiner released a new campaign ad overnight, that makes it clear he is not dropping out of the race for new york mayor, even while his campaign appears to be crumbling around him. Reporter: In his new campaign ad, he says quit isn't the way we roll in new york city. Aside from a wedding picture in the background, his wife, huma abedin, is not in the ad.
