CNN:

Sen. Larry Craig won't resign from the Senate while awaiting a judge's ruling on his effort to get a guilty plea withdrawn in a restroom sex sting, a source said Wednesday.

Sen. Larry Craig is seeking to overturn his guilty plea stemming from an airport bathroom sex sting.[..]

Craig had said he would resign from the Senate if he could not get the guilty plea overturned by September 30.

But Craig on Tuesday said he won't resign until "legal determinations" are made.[..]

A Republican source involved in discussions about the case said Craig has made it clear he wants to find a way to stay in office.

Well, Craig may be kicking and screaming to hold on to his Senate seat, but Rep. Terry Everett (R-AL) announced that he is retiring at the end of this term.
