Weiner to UFT: Endorse me! (Because I’m Confident I'll Make it out of the Primary)

Weiner boldly told the union leaders that they should endorse his bid for mayor in the runoff

In a private meeting with the United Federation of Teachers, Former Representative Anthony Weiner told the union leaders that he would make it out of the Democratic mayoral primary and that they should endorse his candidacy in the runoff— even if they back someone else first in the primary, reported The New York Post.

Weiner told the UFT he is “confident” he would get into a runoff, which would be between the top two vote-getters if no candidate reaches at least 40 percent of the vote in the September primary.

The UFT is said to be debating between endorsing candidates Bill Thompson and Bill de Blasio for the primary.
