NEW YORK (CBSDC/AP) — Anthony Weiner says he wouldn’t run for Congress again if he loses the New York mayoral race.

The former congressman made the comment Monday in response to a question on NBC-TV’s “Today” show.

He says Congress is no longer “a great place if you want to solve problems.”

Weiner says being the mayor of New York City is a better job.

The Democratic primary is on Tuesday.

A Quinnipiac poll released Monday shows Weiner with only 6 percent of the potential Democratic primary vote.

Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011 due to the “sexting” scandal he was embroiled in at the time.
