After announcing her intentions of resigning Tuesday, State Rep.-elect Stacie Marie Laughton said Wednesday that she will continue fighting to keep her forthcoming seat.

“I’m reconsidering and I’m seeking the advice of professionals and through social media,” said Laughton.

“It’s my intention to take the office that I was elected to,” she said this afternoon.

Laughton said her final decision will be based on the finding of the Attorney General's Office, which is reviewing the wordage in the law that states whether convicted felons are eligible to run for office.
