Crist's coattails, Campbell's fender bender



Democratic attorney general candidate Walter Skip Campbell wound up in a mild fender bender in Pinellas County this morning. No one was hurt, and Campbell said the other fellow turned into him. And no, the trial lawyer has no plans to sue the guy.

Campbell, taping an interview for "Political Connections" on Bay News 9, complained that Republican McCollum is avoiding debates and joint appearances and seems intent on "riding on Charlie Crist's coattails." The outcome of the attorney general's race, he said, "Is less about Bill McCollum versus me than the top of the ticket....If Davis is more than 8 points down on election day, it's..." and he gave a bye-bye wave.
