Supporting nonfederal candidates

A nonconnected committee may use money raised for federal elections to make contributions to nonfederal candidates. Donations to nonfederal candidates are subject to state and local laws, however, not the Federal Election Campaign Act.

Reporting donations to nonfederal candidates and committees

The committee must still disclose such contributions (as “Other Disbursements”) in its FEC reports. Itemize “other disbursements” on a Schedule B for Line 29 when they exceed $200 to the same payee during a calendar year. Enter the total of itemized and unitemized other disbursements on the Detailed Summary Page.
