John Campbell served as deputy state attorney general from 1995 to 2003 under then-attorney general Carla Stovall. He also served as head of litigation for Stovall's predecessor, Bob Stephan.

Since 2003, Campbell has been general counsel for the state Insurance Department. He's also an adjunct professor of law at Washburn University in Topeka.

Schmidt is the leader of the Republican majority in the state Senate. He defeated incumbent Attorney General Steve Six earlier this month and takes office Jan. 10.

John Campbell is a real prosecutor and should be viewed as a middle-of-the-road guy, politically (i.e., not one of Phill's guys). Good choice, hopeful sign.

I voted for Six but as a former prosecutor I have no qualms with John Campbell. He is a good man. I knew him when he worked under Carla Stovall, whom I thought performed very well as our state's Chief Law Enforcement Official.
