Former President Bill Clinton says he and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have too many "personal friends" to comment on the New York City mayoral race, adding he is not in a position to discuss his feelings on the sexting scandal engulfing Anthony Weiner's candidacy.

"We are a hundred miles from that race and everyone understands that we are not going to be involved, as long as our personal friends and people who we feel obligations are involved," he told CNN's Nima Elbagir.

Clinton emphasized that he only had "personal" feelings about the scandal and therefore would not be commenting further.

"But there are literally five people in that race, including one of the Republican candidates [John] Catsimatidis, who are personal friends of ours," he said.

He declined to specifically discuss the controversy surrounding Weiner saying simply, "The feelings I have are all personal and since they are, I shouldn't talk about them."
