From Palo Alto Wiki
Thomas J. Campbell (born August 14, 1952) is a highly-experienced law professor, professor of business administration and mid-level politician. He is with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
 Recent career in politics
Campbell began the process of running for California Governor in mid-2008, but abandoned that attempt in January 2010 and switched to running for Barbara Boxer's U.S. Senate seat.  In a poll conducted by Field Research in March 2010, Campbell clearly led the Republican field with 28% versus 22% for Carly Fiorina and 9% for Chuck DeVore (with 40% still undecided), while in a general election matchup, Campbell is currently too close to call with incumbent Barbara Boxer, 44% to 43%.
Campbell is long on experience and has demonstrated his mastery of budget matters and how to achieve fiscal responsibility. He is only a minor adjustment from his gubernatorial campaign. On March 18, Campbell spoke at the World Affairs Council in San Francisco, taking care to re-affirm his unqualified support of Operation Opera, Israel's 1981 surprise attack on and destruction of the nuclear reactor being constructed in Osirak, Iraqi. In the closing the Q&A, he made a requested three-point summary: United States Constitution, balanced budget and political freedom.
