Can a corporate or labor union PAC purchase a ticket to a candidate’s fundraiser?

A corporate or labor union PAC may purchase a ticket to a federal candidate’s fundraising event. The contribution is treated just like any other contribution and must come from the separate segregated and not from the connected entity’s own treasury. The fact that a ticket purchase may have a market value or other perceived value higher or lower than the amount paid has no impact. The entire purchase price counts toward the contribution limit.
