Campbell's remarks on casino stir Democrats
Monday, January 19, 2004

Democrats in Colorado are seizing on Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell's statements about a proposed tribal casino in the state.

Campbell, a Republican, told The Denver Post that the pressures of being an Indian and being a Senator sometimes make him "wish I wasn't even a senator." Democrats say this shows Campbell isn't committed to his position.

Campbell has said he is running for re-election this year. He currently serves as chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee.
