Anthony Weiner is running for mayor of New York City — and the former Congressman makes his announcement via a YouTube video.

The video begins with a scene at home with his wife and new child and soars into New York City-heavy narrative.

“Look, I made some big mistakes, and I know I let a lot of people down, but I’ve learned some tough lessons,” Weiner admits, asking for “a second chance to work for you.”

Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, also sends a message to New Yorkers.

“We love this city, and no one will work harder to make it better than Anthony,” she insists.

He left office two years ago after he published a revealing photograph of himself on Twitter and admitted that he had sent “messages and photos of an explicit nature” to women other than his wife.
