AG Primary Race Resolves Itself
With the departure of Rep. Joe Negron (see photo) from the Republican primary for Attorney General, the general election match-up has been effectively resolved as a race between Sen. Walter "Skip" Campbell and former congressman and twice unsuccessful U.S. Senate candidate, Bill McCollum.
Campbell campaign manager Jeff Garcia professed himself satisfied with the contrast between the two men. Garcia is best known for managing Rep. Elaine Bloom's 2000 campaign against the long serving Congressman, Clay Shaw. Bloom came within 599 votes of unseating the incumbent in one of the nation's closest Congressional races that year. Shaw faces another challenge this year - this time from Sen. Ron Klein.
