Bush on Skip: He's a real character

19

September

Gov. Jeb Bush wasn't bashful when asked Tuesday about state Sen. Walter "Skip" Campbell, the Democrat from Tamarac running for attorney general.

"I think Skip Campbell is a real character," Bush said to reporters before an Orlando fundraiser for the GOP candidate, Bill McCollum. "Sometimes it's hard to take him too seriously."

The state cabinet, Bush said, is a body where everyone has to work as a team. He said Democrat AG Bob Butterworth was a professional, as was Charlie Crist. And what about a potential AG Campbell? "Grandstanding all the time -- that can be a problem," Bush said, implying Campbell might look out for headlines more than Floridians.

On McCollum: "McCollum was focused on terrorism before terrorism was cool."
