(USATODAY) — Anthony Weiner vowed Sunday to stay in the New York City mayor’s race, as he confirmed his campaign manager quit and his top rival said he was not qualified to lead the nation’s most populous city.

Weiner said that campaign manager Danny Kedem resigned after revelations came out last week that Weiner continued to send salacious messages online to women, even after resigning from Congress in 2011.

“We knew this would be a tough campaign,” Weiner said while campaigning in Brooklyn. “We have an amazing staff, but this isn’t about the people working on the campaign. It’s about the people we’re campaigning for.”
