Springfield based US Senator Dick Durbin won't be swapping Capitol Hill for the Statehouse anytime soon. 
 
On Wednesday, Durbin was elected to another term as the number two Democrat in the Senate and Durbin says that's where he will stay, stating more firmly than ever he has no intention of running against Bruce Rauner for Governor in 2018. Durbin recently rejected talk of making a run for the state's chief executive job.
 
 
Durbin says the election of Republican Donald Trump as President helped him reject talk of a run for state office.
