Now that the governor and his administration have been thoroughly raked over the coals regarding the disastrous CMS audit, I wonder how long it will be before editorial writers demand that the Senate not confirm Paul Campbell, the governor’s choice to become the new CMS director.
It’ll definitely be a heckuva floor fight. But this could be decided before the nomination even reaches the floor.
Does the governor really want this confirmantion fight? Does he want the committee hearings? The rancorous floor debate?
I kinda doubt that the governor relishes subjecting himself to this very public meatgrinder. Campbell could wind up telling the guv he wants to, “Spend more time with my family.”
More in tomorrow’s Capitol Fax.
