TORONTO (AP) - Rob Ford says he loves his job and will stay on as mayor of Toronto despite admitting for the first time that he smoked crack.

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.

The allegations that the mayor of Canada's largest city had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in news reports in May. Ford initially insisted the video didn't exist, sidestepped questions about whether he had ever smoked crack and rebuffed growing calls on him to step down.
