Political Comeback? You tell us...

You may remember him as Congressman Anthony Weiner-- the politician who made headlines nearly two years ago after he resigned from Congress following a sexting scandal-- but now he would like to be remembered as Mayor Anthony Weiner. 

Weiner announced his candidacy for New  York City mayor earlier this week in a rather unconventional way--via a YouTube video in which Weiner admits to making "some big mistakes" while asking for a second chance. The video features his wife, Huma Abedin, who tells the voters of New York City that "no one will work harder to make it better than Anthony." 

What do you think...a political comeback in the works? Do you think he is jumping in because he thinks he has an actual chance of winning or because he would like to repair is broken image? A good choice for NYC or not? Share your thoughts with us here on The Daily Bret or via Twitter @BretBaier or @SpecialReport!

Should NYC Marathon be canceled?

****Update: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city will cancel Sunday's NYC Marathon in response to public uproar in the wake of Hurricane Sandy



Staten Island was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. 19 people in the borough died in the storm, including 2 young boys swept away by the strong current. Some people lost everything, thousands are without power and many on Staten Island feel that relief has not come fast enough.


Mayor Bloomberg announced that the New York City Marathon will take place as scheduled-- leaving many outraged. Extra police officers will be needed for crowd control and generators have been set up to power the marathon tents while thousands are without power in their own homes.


A Staten Island hotel manager told Fox News that he will not force guests out who have been displaced due to the storm ---despite the fact that many coming to town for the marathon have had reservations for weeks if not longer.


We want to know-- what do you think? Should the NYC Marathon take place or should it be postponed? Is it a good way to reunite New York after a tragic disaster or will it only make it worse? Share your thoughts with us here and on Twitter @BretBaier and we send thoughts and prayers to all affected by this devastating storm.
