Alas, poor Tom Campbell. He gave up this week trying to compete with millionaires Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman, as news leaked out that he is now running for the U.S. Senate.
But things aren’t getting any easier for Campbell, who is a professor at Chapman University, in Orange. Now he has to run against another millionaire, Carly Fiorina, who just lent herself $2.5 million, and Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.
Campbell is expected to confirm his switch to the Senate race tomorrow, in Los Angeles, according to the Sacramento Bee.
Here is an excerpt from Campbell’s bio, which you can read on his website:
Tom has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago. His faculty advisor was Milton Friedman. Prior to that, Tom had obtained his B.A. and M.A. degrees in economics from the University of Chicago, on the same day in 1973. He then entered Harvard Law School where he served on the Harvard Law Review Board of Editors. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law in 1976. After law school, Tom served as law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White. Thereafter, Tom returned to the University of Chicago for his economics doctorate, received in 1980. His free market economics training cemented a life-long commitment to limited government and greater individual liberty.
