CONTRIBUTION REGULATIONS: Under Texas law, there are limits on how much you can contribute to a judicial campaign and when you can make a contribution. Contributions can be made to judicial candidates beginning 210 days before the official filing deadline. Contributions cannot be made more than 120 days after the candidate's final contested election in an election year, or, if a candidate has no opponent in any election in an election year, more than 120 days after the primary election. Individuals can contribute no more than $5,000, with no more than $2,500 earmarked for each election (primary, general). The total of all contributions by a person, that person's spouse, and that person's minor children cannot exceed the $5,000 limit. A law firm can contribute no more than $5000. The total amount that the lawyers in a law firm and the law firm can contribute is $30,000. Total contributions from general-purpose political committees, including monetary and in-kind contributions, may not exceed $300,000. Corporations, in general, cannot contribute to campaigns. However, an exception is made for professional corporations, which may contribute as long as the limit for contributions from a single professional corporation is observed.
