What can a state PAC do in a federal race?
February 7, 2020 8:50 PM   Subscribe

I lead a subgroup in the Democratic Party of New Mexico. We are registered as a PAC (political action committee) with the NM secretary of state. We are considering various types of involvement in a congressional race. Is anyone familiar with any federal election law or regulations that might be applicable?

As a state PAC but not a federal PAC, do we have any restrictions on:
* Endorsements,
* Publicity and communications,
* Volunteering, or
* Financial contributions?

Please do not speculate. I am seeking answers based on only relevant background or sources.

In fact, if you can cite a source, it would help a lot when I relay info to my group.

Thank you.

This on coordinating communications seems relevant as well.
