New York senator Chuck Schumer was given the opportunity this morning on national TV to endorse his one-time protege Anthony Weiner in the New York City mayoral race. Schumer refused the offer. 

"I'm not commenting on the mayor's race or on Anthony Weiner's race at this point, no," Schumer said, when asked whether he'll support Weiner.

Weiner announced his bid for New York City mayor last week.
