Mike Campbell, lieutenant governor, Republican

11 a.m.
Challenger Mike Campbell, son of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell, avoids mentioning incumbent Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer. He will acknowledge this big difference, though: “He is pleased with the office in its current form. I want to see it restructured” so that the lieutenant is on the same team with the governor. “It’s not the lieutenant governor’s job to go up there and fight the governor. That’s crazy.”

Makes sense to me. But it seems to me that in the race for Gov Lite, a part-time job, the conduct of the incumbent is a legitimate issue. Seems to me Mr. Campbell is being too much the gentleman. Or maybe I’ve spent too much time on blogs.
