NY campaign contribution limits increase as Cuomo seeks to lower ceiling

Campaign contribution limits are rising, and donors can now give nearly $70,000 to candidates for statewide office in New York.

The new contribution limits established by the state Board of Elections allow individuals to donate $47,100 to statewide candidates in a general election. The previous maximum was $44,000.

There are separate ceilings for Democratic and Republican primaries because the limit is calculated using a formula that includes the total number of voters enrolled with the party. For Democrats, the limit increased from $21,100 to $22,600. The limit for GOP primary candidates is $14,300, up from $13,374.

The elections board also raised contribution limits for party committees — $117,300, up from $109,600 — and candidates for state Legislature. The limits for donors to state Senate campaigns increased from $7,000 to $7,500 for the primary election and $11,000 to $11,800 for the general.
