Idle problem on my CJ7

New to the forum and a novice - I have 1983 CJ7 with a 258 inline 6 and a rebuilt Holley carb. Jeep sat cold for a few years and I recently got it running again. Car will fire up fine and idle consistently in neutral. But after driving, when I downshift from 3rd or 4th, the engine will stay running at high rpms (maybe 4000), as if the throttle is stuck. I can typically solve this by giving the gas pedal a good pump and then it settles down. Also, when I drive in 3rd or 4th gear, I can take my foot off the gas and the car will maintain a constant speed. Built in cruise control is nice but not exactly what I want. Something is stuck but not sure what yet. Carb? Wanted to get some thoughts from the experts before taking things apart.

Thanks!

The choke is not warming up. It should have an electric wire running to the choke, see if it is getting power.
