Anthony Weiner's run for a renaissance is officially on.

The ex-congressman who resigned over raunchy tweets said late Tuesday that he's in the New York City mayoral race. He had said last month he was considering it.

The Democrat is jumping into a crowded field for September's primary. He's arriving with some significant advantages, including a $4.8 million campaign war chest, polls showing him ahead of all but one other Democrat — and no end of name recognition.
