Responding to ongoing speculation that he could be offered a White House job in President Obama's second term, Mayor Nutter today said he's not going anywhere.

"I'm going to serve out my entire term as the mayor of the city of Philadelphia," Nutter said, adding that he'd made his feelings known to Obama's staff. "The question won't be asked. I know that for a fact....The folks at the White House know very clearly my intentions."

In the past, Nutter's comments on the rumors were less definite. But today, he purposely sought to end any conversation about the possibility that he would leave office before his term ends in January 2016.

"Absolutely, 100 percent I'm not going anywhere. I love this job," Nutter said.
