When Iowa lost two seats in Congress due to the 1930 census, Campbell's district was renumbered but its boundaries were left intact. He was admitted to the bar the same year and commenced practice in Battle Creek. Two years later, he was elected as mayor of Battle Creek, and served until 1911.
That year, he was elected to the Iowa House of Representatives, where he served until 1913. During the First World War Campbell served as a private in Company Six, First Officers Training School, at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. Following his discharge, he was elected to the Iowa Senate in 1920.

Iowa lost two seats in Congress due to the 1930 census, which required the 1931 Iowa Legislature to reapportion the state's congressional districts for the first time in over four decades. Franklin D. Roosevelt's landslide election also carried many Democrats to victory. Campbell was one of several incumbent Republican congressmen in Iowa who were unseated that year.
In all, Campbell served in the Seventy-first and Seventy-second Congresses, from March 4, 1929 to March 3, 1933. After returning to Iowa, Campbell resumed the practice of law. He died in Battle Creek, Iowa on April 26, 1969, and was interred in Mount Hope Cemetery.
