Elections Canada has dropped its case against Essex Conservative MP Jeff Watson.

The agency had alleged Watson overspent by almost $11,000 during his 2011 campaign.

In a statement to CBC News, Watson said he made changes to his campaign filing last July, less than a month after CBC News first reported on the dispute.
