A candidate for a Kentucky state House seat says she'll stay in the race despite pleading guilty to a drunken driving charge. News outlets report Monteia Mundy entered her plea to driving under the influence on Monday.

Charges of leaving the scene of an accident without rendering aid and failure to wear a seat belt were dropped.

The Republican candidate for the 88th District House seat was accused of being involved in a collision in April. She said she took prescribed medication and had a drink without realizing that a side effect was disorientation.

Mundy apologized and says she'll stay in the running.
