Donations to nonfederal candidates

Reporting on PAC forms

The PAC reports giving $500 to Monty Don for Governor on Schedule B, supporting Line 29. It includes the committee’s address, date the contribution was given, and amount. In the purpose of disbursement field, the committee notes that this is a “Nonfederal contribution.”
