Tribune Backs Campbell in Republican Senate Primary
The Oakland Tribune endorses former Rep. Tom Campbell (R-Calif.) in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, noting his "record of service in the state Legislature and Congress along with his deep knowledge of economics and solid integrity." The Tribune adds, "Rarely does one find such a combination of academic achievement, government service and expertise in a field that is critically important during this time of economic crisis." Assembly member Chuck DeVore and Former Hewlett-Packard Chair and CEO Carly Fiorina also are vying for the nomination.
