GOP committeewoman wants to keep post



TAMPA -- GOP state committeewoman Carol Carter, who said last week she would resign amid criticism of a racist e-mail, now says she wants to keep her post.

Deborah Cox-Roush, chairman of the Hillsborough County Republican Party, confirmed today that Carter wants to rescind her resignation. Carter represents Hillsborough County in the state party.

"The Hillsborough County Republican Party accepted Ms. Carter's resignation and received it last week at the same time that the state party did," Cox-Roush said. "We are aware today that she has rescinded that resignation. The local party has no authority to accept or reject the rescinding of that resignation, and we are waiting on instructions from the Republican Party of Florida."
