Nonfederal Fundraising by Federal Candidates

September 1, 2015

Several states will hold elections for nonfederal offices this November. Federal candidates and officeholders that wish to aid candidates and party organizations participating in nonfederal races with fundraising may solicit funds that comply with the Act’s limitations and prohibitions and applicable State law at a nonfederal fundraising event, as long as the solicitation either (1) is limited on its face to federally permissible funds, or (2) the candidate or officeholder uses an appropriate, clear and conspicuous written or oral disclaimer that the solicitation is limited to federally permissible funds.
