Yesterday, Josh Rosenstein discussed post-campaign activities for federal officeholders, in an article discussing Eric Cantor’s next steps after his term expires.
“Cantor has more going for him than just his credentials: Between his leadership PAC and his campaign committee, the Virginia Republican has more than $2 million that he can use to support state and federal candidates.
However, when all is said and done, he might have less than that amount, said Joshua Rosenstein, a partner at Sandler, Reiff, Lamb, Rosenstein & Birkenstock. The candidate’s committee must refund any money to donors that had been designated for the general election.
Some politicians keep active leadership PACs even after they’re gone from Congress, Rosenstein said.”
