TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Former Gov. Charlie Crist isn't going to get a clear path to incumbent Gov. Rick Scott.
Former State Sen. Nan Rich officially qualified for the governor's race Tuesday. That means that Rich and Crist will square off against each other in the Aug. 26 Democratic primary.
Most of the focus in the race so far has been between Crist, who once was a Republican, and Scott.
Rich, however, has refused to stand aside for Crist and has questioned his positions on various issues, such as abortion and gay marriage.
Two relatively unknown Republicans have also qualified for the governor's race, meaning that Scott will appear on the primary ballot as well.
Libertarian Party candidates for both governor and attorney general have also qualified for the ballot this week.
