NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee panel has dismissed campaign finance complaints against two Republican gubernatorial candidates that preceded the Aug. 2 primary election.

The Registry of Election Finance on Wednesday dismissed a complaint about GOP gubernatorial nominee Bill Lee from June. The complaint claimed Lee used his businesses to supplement his campaign without disclosure and beyond limits.

It also claimed Lee exceeded campaign donation limits in other ways, including through trusts.

The panel dismissed complaints from February against House Speaker Beth Harwell, who lost in the four-way GOP governor's race. Those complaints questioned whether Harwell's political committee helped her beyond legal limits and examined whether she could financially back a $3.1 million self-loan.

Lee faces Democratic ex-Nashville Mayor Karl Dean in the general election.
