(CNN) - Gov. Mark Sanford's office responded Thursday to a chorus of calls for his resignation from fellow Republicans, and rumors that he was weighing the idea. Full statement:
The governor has no plans to step aside, temporarily or otherwise. He remains committed and determined to repair the damage he has done in his marriage and to building back the trust of the people of South Carolina.
He will be spending the long Fourth of July holiday weekend with his family, leaving for Florida tomorrow morning. The Sanford family asks members of the media to respect their privacy while they are together this weekend. The Sanfords also hope to take a longer family vacation toward the end of July.
He's spending most of the today at the Mansion, continuing to touch base with state officials, family, friends and supporters.
Sanford's statement comes as the South Carolina attorney general made a public call for the full release of the governor's travel records:Statement by Attorney General Henry McMaster
"Maintaining public trust, complete transparency and full public disclosure is vitally important. I have called on Governor Sanford to publically release all travel records to the media and public as promised."
