Craig Plans to Finish Senate Term
Posted on Oct 4, 2007
Comedians can now let out that sigh of relief: Disgraced Sen. Larry Craig isn’t going anywhere. While he says he won’t run again, Craig now plans to finish his term in the Senate.

“I have seen that it is possible for me to work here effectively,” Craig said in a written statement certain to disappoint fellow Republicans who have long urged him to step down.
Craig had earlier announced he would resign his seat by Sept. 30, but had wavered when he went to court in hopes of withdrawing his plea.
The third-term lawmaker issued his statement not long after Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter relayed word he has selected a replacement for Craig in the event of a resignation.
