2 AAC 50.278. Draft groups

(a) A draft group must report its contribution and expenditure activity as a group under AS 15.13 and as required by this chapter.

(b) A draft group may make expenditures to solicit contributions to

(1) defray its own administrative costs; and

(2) attempt to draft individuals to become candidates, including the expenditure of money to

(A) extol the qualities of individuals the group seeks to draft; and

(B) inform the public of the group's position on issues and the qualities it seeks in potential candidates.

(c) A draft group may not

(1) engage in any political activity other than an activity described in (b) and (d) of this section;

(2) accept contributions in excess of $500 from any individual or $1,000 from any group;

(3) except for personal travel expenses, opinion surveys, or polls, make any expenditure that might benefit an individual successfully drafted for office and who has made it known that the individual will be seeking election to public office; and

(4) except as provided in (d) of this section, make monetary or nonmonetary contributions to, or expend funds on behalf of, any person who has declared that he or she is seeking office or who has filed a declaration of candidacy or nominating petition or become a candidate by any other means.

(d) For the purposes of AS 15.13.400 (5) and this chapter, a draft group that expends more than 50 percent of its funds in an effort to draft one individual or, in the case of gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial candidates, a team of individuals to campaign for public office is a controlled group. If the individual or team subject to the draft formally declares for public office, any contributions to the controlled group must be considered contributions to the candidate or team when determining the maximum allowable contribution under AS 15.13.070 . A controlled group may contribute up to the maximum allowed by law to the candidate or team of candidates.
