GOP House member says Doolittle should step aside

WASHINGTON ” Republican Congressman John Campbell of Orange County says it would be best if fellow GOP Representative John Doolittle doesn’t run for re-election.

Campbell, who made his comments Wednesday in an interview with the Associated Press, is the first of Doolittle’s colleagues in the House to call publicly for him to step aside.

Doolittle, a nine-term conservative from Rocklin, is under federal investigation in the influence-peddling probe of jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

He barely won re-election last year and Republicans are growing increasingly concerned that next year he won’t survive.
