John Campbell’s biggest adversary just turned into his best friend.

In a surprise move moments ago, Chittenden County Republican Diane Snelling withdrew her candidacy for Senate President Pro Tem and instead nominated her would-be rival John Campbell.

“This may seem surprising to some, however I have been promised nothing more and nothing less than a fair and accountable process and productive Senate,” Snelling said on the floor of a packed Senate chamber.

Snelling last year made little effort to veil her contempt for the chaotic scheduling and procedure blamed for casting the body into disarray.

Campbell has apparently convinced her it won’t happen again. More on his victory speech coming soon.
