Rob Ford Will Seek Re-Election as Toronto Mayor Despite Crack Controversy

Ford said Tuesday he will continue in his job and will seek re-election next year.

Ford earlier acknowledged he smoked crack "probably a year ago" when he was in a "drunken stupor," an admission that immediately intensified the pressure on him to resign.
