Campbell denies rumors he's dropping out of Atwater race

After two days of swirling rumors and speculation, Democrat Skip Campbell denied that he was dropping out of the high-profile race against incumbent state Sen. Jeff Atwater, R-North Palm Beach.

"I don't know where everyone is getting these rumors," Campbell told The Miami Herald Wednesday. "I'm still in there."

Campbell, a former state senator who left office due to term limits, is trying to unseat Atwater, who is set to become the next Senate president. But rumors had been circulating that Campbell planned to withdraw from the race Wednesday.
