The article reports that U.S. Senator Larry Craig is expected to finish his full term before retiring, despite of the ruling of Minnesota's Hennepin County court which denied his bid to withdraw his guilty plea for lewd conduct. The determination of Craig to stay in the Senate has been a way to clear his name in the Senate Ethics Committee. Craig's refusal to step aside until the start of the 2008 race, is expected to make the campaign of Republican nominee more difficult.
