Campbell to forgo interests

BESIEGED Campbell Newman will give up all his and wife Lisa's business interests if elected, in a bid to end what he says is "the most vicious, untrue smear campaign in Australian political history".

Labor has relentlessly campaigned against the Liberal National Party leader and his family over allegations of "dodgy deals" involving companies run by relatives of the couple.
