Coordinated party expenditure limits

As detailed in the tables on this page, the 2019 coordinated party expenditure limits are now available, along with archived limits from past years.

  • For Senate nominees, the 2019 limits range from $101,900 to $3,113,400, depending on each state’s voting age population (VAP);
  • For House nominees in states with only one representative, the limit is $101,900; and
  • For House nominees in all other states, the limit is $50,900.

These limits reflect the 2018 VAP and COLA (5.09279), and apply to general elections held during 2019, including special elections. For additional information on coordinated party expenditures, please consult the Campaign Guide for Political Party Committees.
