GOP Candidate Plans To Restart Campaign Despite Extramarital Affair


"We do need someone in Albany who will represent us all, in making things better, and telling the truth about all aspects of that public service," Arnold said in her statement, according to the blog. "I have realized, after much thought and prayer, that I am still that candidate, despite my shortcomings, and it has been pointed out to me by the hundreds and hundreds of messages I have received."

When Arnold announced her affair last week, she said she planned to remain on the ballot but would not actively campaign. Her latest statement appeared to make no mention of whether she planned to try to reconcile her marriage.
