PITTSBURGH (AP) - The mayor of Pittsburgh says he is thankful to be listed by a magazine as one of the country’s most interesting mayors but disputed the idea that he’s jockeying for higher office.

Bill Peduto tweeted his response Sunday after being featured in the Politico Magazine article. He was listed alongside leaders of cities including Los Angeles, Boston, Denver and Miami.

The article explored the mayors’ potential futures and suggested that Peduto might be eyeing a run for some other office.

But the Democrat told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he has no interest in that. He said he plans to run for re-election this year and possibly seek a third term in 2021. After that, he said, he would look outside politics.
