The FEC determined Bruning did not file candidacy paperwork in a timely manner for his run for U.S. Senate in 2012, among other violations. Bruning agreed to a settlement with the FEC last month.
The fine stems from a complaint filed against Bruning by the Nebraska Democratic Party shortly after Bruning announced he was launching an exploratory committee for a Senate run in late 2010.
Bruning was defeated in the Republican primary in May 2012 by then-state Sen. Deb Fischer, who went on to win the election.
