From the NY Times:
Rep. Anthony D. Weiner wants to clear up a few things.
No, he is not kicking himself for staying out of the mayor’s race.
Yes, he thinks he could have beaten Michael R. Bloomberg.
As for the $90 million that the mayor poured into the contest? That’s nothing, Mr. Weiner said: the mayor would have needed $150 million to take him on.
“They were afraid of me,” he said of Mr. Bloomberg and his campaign aides.
Uh huh. More likely it was the other way around.
