2008 Coordinated Party Expenditure Limits are Now Available

February 25, 2008

The limits available for national and state party committees to spend in connection with the general election campaigns of candidates for federal office have been updated and are now available online. The limit for party committees to spend on 2008 general elections for House candidates is $42,100 ($84,100 in states with only one congressional district). The limit for Senate campaigns is based on a state's voting age population; thus the limits range from $84,100 in sparsely populated states to over $2 million in California. Finally, the national party committees may spend up to $19,151,200 on coordinated party expenditures in connection with the general election for President. (State and local party committees need prior written approval from the national committee before making coordinated party expenditures in connection with the Presidential election.)
