Campbell: I can beat Jeff Atwater

Former state Sen. Skip Campbell is thinking about his New Year's resolution for 2008 and it goes something like this: beat Jeff Atwater, the North Palm Beach Republican senator (whose Senate district has favored Dems in some recent elections.)

"I may be coming back,'' Campbell told the Miami Herald on Friday. "The Democrats are trying to get me to run against Jeff Atwater.''

Campbell said he will make up his mind after the New Year but, he says, in his unsuccessful run for attorney general last year, Campbell won in Atwater's district "and three polls show I can win again.''

Two weeks ago, Atwater was just named by his Republican colleagues the incoming Senate president, in line to replace Ken Pruitt in 2009.
