From NBC's Ken Strickland and Mark Murray
The AP reports today, "Sen. Larry Craig has all but dropped any notion of trying to complete his term, and is focused on helping Idaho send a new senator to Washington within a few weeks, his top spokesman said Thursday."

Craig spokesman Dan Whiting said in a statement that this isn't new. "This is nothing new -- all along we have said that he expects to resign on September 30th and he and the staff are working towards that end to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible for Idaho. Tuesday night I stated that he simply left a very, very small door slightly ajar."
