Traditional PACs

Traditional:  Any organization or group, including a corporation or membership organization, other than an individual, that raises and/or spends funds for the purpose of influencing the nomination or election of a candidate to political office.

Contribution Limits:  Traditional PACs do not have contribution limits.

Expenditure Rules:  Traditional PACs that have a parent organization are considered a business entity, and all donations to other entities are considered a business entity contribution. Therefore, Traditional PACs with a parent organization may not make donations to candidates, SSF PACs, or Leadership PACs. Traditional PACs that do not have a parent organization may donate to candidates and Leadership PACs, provided they are not doing so with funds derived from business entities.
