TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida won't appeal a federal court ruling blocking a portion of state matching funds for Attorney General Bill McCollum's gubernatorial campaign.
Multimillionaire Rick Scott, who is self-financing most of his campaign against McCollum for the Republican nomination, obtained the preliminary injunction.
An appeal court in Atlanta halted implementation of a provision in the state's public campaign financing law that would have given McCollum an amount equal to what Scott spends over a $24.9 million cap.
Department of State spokeswoman Jennifer Krell Davis said Wednesday that officials didn't think a rehearing request nor an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court would succeed.
