Despite felony, Del. man can run for AG

DOVER, Del. - September 21, 2010

Officials said Monday that Doug Campbell, 30, can run against incumbent Democratic Attorney General Beau Biden. Individuals convicted of felonies cannot run for elected office in Delaware. But state elections commissioner Elaine Manlove says Campbell got the conviction in North Carolina, and the same conviction would not be a felony in Delaware.

According to court records, Campbell was arrested in 2004 and spent seven months in prison after being convicted of speeding to elude arrest. He was also convicted of driving with a revoked license, driving without proper vehicle registration and driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor.

Campbell is an Independent Party candidate.
