Campbell awarded $242K in raises to staffers


Retiring Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-Colorado) gave staff members more than $242,000 in raises since announcing his retirement in March, The Denver Post reports.

A spokesperson said the raises were made because the staff members will be losing their jobs in January. Other members of the Senate who are leaving have made similar arrangements.

One staff member received a 106 percent raise, The Post said. Others saw their salaries grow by 20 percent to 49 percent.
