Rep. Campbell, who sits on the House Banking and International Relations Committees,
is also a professor at Stanford Law School. His principal subjects are anti-trust,
economic analysis of legal issues, and international law. In December he won a
special election in California’s 15th Congressional District which includes San Jose.
This campaign attracted national attention as a test in which Tom’s Democratic
opponent focused his efforts against House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) and the
Republican Congress as much as against Campbell. Tom previously served two terms in
the House representing the district that includes Stanford. From 1992-95, he was a
member of the California State Senate.
