Craig is leaving the Senate at the end of the month.
With his wife at his side and [Idaho governor] Otter standing behind him, Craig said, “It is with sadness and deep regret that I announce it is my intention to resign from the Senate effective Sept. 30.”
Craig said pursing his legal options while serving as a senator would distract from the business of Idaho.
“What is best of Idaho has always been the focus of my efforts,” he said.
Responding to reports of the last week, he said only: “I have no control over what people choose to believe.”
