Gov. Pete Wilson put the finishing touch on the team he hopes will guide him into the White House next year, announcing Thursday that his campaign will be run by a former tobacco company executive who helped steer George Bush's 1988 election. Craig L. Fuller resigned his position Thursday as senior vice president of the Philip Morris Cos. in New York to join Wilson's campaign at its Sacramento headquarters. Fuller, 44, will have overall responsibility for running the campaign, Wilson aides said.
