Re:
Campaign Contributions
Dear Treasurers Hanna and Horan:
The Attorney General's Office has received a request to clarify the campaign
contribution limits established in RSA chapter 664 for candidates who have not agreed to the
expenditure cap and who accept contributions for a State primary after filing for office.
With respect to a State primary election, the Attorney General's Office has informed
campaigns that the law limits contributions received after filing for office to a totalo f
$1,000.00, adding together both contributions from the person during the pre-declaration
period and any additional contributions received after filing for office. A candidate who had
received $1,000.00 or more from a person prior to filing could not accept any futiher
contribution from that person for the primary. Memberso fthe Secretaryo f State's Office
have informed campaigns that they may accept up to $1,000.00 for the State primary after
filing, even it the same person has already made a contributiono f up to $5,000.00 before the
candidate filed.
The Attorney General's Office and the Secretaryo f State's Office have uniformly and
consistently informed campaigns that:
•  Prior to filing for office and declaring whether the candidate will agree to the
expenditure cap, the candidate or an exploratory committee may accept contributions
from a person up to $5,000.00;
•  A candidate who does not agree to the expenditure cap may accept no more than
$1,000.00 from a person for the general election.
