Carroll Campbell, who helped persuade Congress to enact the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 while president of the American Council of Life Insurers, died Thursday.[@@]

Campbell stepped down from the ACLI, Washington, in 2001, after disclosing that he suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. He suffered from the disease for 6 years, and he died from it, according to the Charleston, S.C. Post and Courier.

Campbell grew up in Greenville, S.C., and served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 8 years before becoming only the second Republican to be elected governor of South Carolina since Reconstruction.

Carroll campaigned for now-President Bush in the South Carolina primary in 2000, and he was mentioned at the time as a potential vice presidential candidate.

ACLI President Frank Keating says the ACLI was saddened to learn of Campbell’s death. “Gov. Campbell was a wonderful man and will be missed,” Keating says.
