Senator Craig Will Stay in Congress

Idaho Senator Larry Craig now says he'll stay in Congress for the time being.

Craig had said he would resign Sept. 30 over his guilty plea in a men's room sex sting at the Minneapolis airport.

A Minnesota judge now says it will be October before he rules on Craig's request to withdraw the plea.

Legal observers say Craig faces a tough fight in convincing the court to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

Minnesota law allows pleas to be withdrawn if a "manifest injustice" is shown.
