Contributions to retire debts
If a campaign committee has net debts outstanding after an election is over, it may raise contributions to retire the debt provided that:
- The contribution is designated for that election (e.g., “2022 primary debt”);
- The contribution does not cause the contributor to exceed the contributor’s limit for the designated election; and
- The campaign has net debts outstanding for the designated election on the day that it receives the contribution.
For more information on retiring campaign debt, please visit our raising contributions to retire debt and reporting campaign debt web pages, and consider attending our Nov. 30 Winding Down the Campaign and Post-General Reporting Webinar.
