Geithner says he will stay at Treasury

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Timothy Geithner has told President Barack Obama that he will remain on the job as Treasury secretary.

The Treasury Department released a statement Sunday saying Geithner had informed the president of his decision to remain in the administration. Geithner is the only remaining top official on Obama's original economics team.

In late June, people close to Geithner said he was considering leaving after the debt limit was raised in August because he was tired of commuting to New York, where his son will be finishing up his last year in high school.
