King officially ends campaign



UPDATE: Full story here.

Jim King, the controversial GOP challenger to incumbent U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown Waite, R-Brooksville, officially ended his campaign this week, according to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission.

King mailed a termination report to the agency July 14, the day he said he would leave the race after a Times investigation exposed his bogus claims about being a doctor and serving in Afghanistan. It was received Monday and made available today after a public records request.
