Insurance Commissioner and Republican candidate for Governor John Oxendine is scheduled to go before the state ethics commission less than a month before a crowded primary.

The hearing is set for June 24; the primary elections July 20th. Oxendine is considered a GOP front runner and currently faces six challengers.

Last year, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that two insurance companies funneled almost 10 times the legal limit to Oxendine, using 10 Alabama-based political action committees.

Georgia law forbids public officials from taking money from the companies they regulate.

Oxendine later returned the money.
