Hacienda Heights : Campbell Opts Out of Race

February 06, 1986

State Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights), who announced last year that he was assessing the possibility of running for the U. S. Senate, said that he has abandoned any thought of becoming a candidate.

Campbell said his supporters had pledged $500,000 to a campaign for the Republican nomination, and a poll showed that 30% of the voters statewide recognized his name. Although the financial support and the polls offered some encouragement, Campbell said, "I do not believe these factors add up to victory."

Campbell won reelection to a four-year term in the state Senate in 1984.
