NEW YORK (AP) — Anthony Weiner has vowed to stay in the race for New York City mayor despite the resignation of his campaign manager.

Weiner confirmed Sunday that campaign manager Danny Kedem resigned the day before after reports surfaced that Weiner continued to exchange lewd photos and messages with women despite resigning from Congress in 2011 over the same behavior.

Weiner says he has an "amazing staff" but that his campaign "isn't about the people working on the campaign."

Weiner was forced to discuss his online behavior after a gossip website printed excerpts of conversations Weiner had with Indiana college student Sydney Leathers last summer.

Weiner apologized and promised that the "behavior is behind me."

He later admitted that he traded racy messages with at least three women since leaving office.
