TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Senate candidate accused of a financial disclosure violation is back on the ballot.
The 1st District Court of Appeal said there are other remedies for such violations Wednesday as it restored Republican Jim Norman's candidacy for the 12th District seat in the Tampa area.
A Tallahassee judge had ordered Norman off the ballot because he failed to list a $500,000 gift to his wife on his disclosure form.
The Democrats did not field a candidate, but two write-in candidates have qualified for the race.
State Rep. Kevin Ambler, who lost to Norman in the GOP primary, filed the court challenge.
