Judge in matching funds lawsuit promises ruling Wednesday



Federal district court Judge Robert Hinkle has recessed until 2:30 p.m. and promises a ruling on Rick Scott's request to stop Bill McCollum from collecting public financing money if Scott spends more than $24.9 million. Hinkle appears to be concerned about disrupting the campaign this close to the primary election and unconvinced that rulings in other states apply here. Stay tuned.
