Crist, Scott and Three GOP Cabinet Members On Ballot

TALLAHASSEE (AP) — Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist are now officially on the 2014 ballot.

Crist, who was elected as a Republican, is now running as a Democrat. Both Scott and Crist qualified for the ballot Monday.

Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner also qualified for re-election. The three incumbents are all Republicans.

Candidates seeking statewide and local offices were allowed to start qualifying at noon. Qualifying closes at noon on Friday.

Judicial candidates and candidates for U.S. Congress have already qualified.

Nan Rich, a former state senator and Democrat also challenging Scott, plans to qualify on Tuesday.

Some candidates will be elected without opposition on Friday.

Others’ fate will be decided by voters in the Aug. 26 primary or the Nov. 4 general election.
