Miami, FL (AP) - Three U.S. Senate candidates are responsible for
nearly half the notices the Federal Election Commission has issued
in the past year for taking contributions that appear to exceed
An Associated Press analysis found that GOP candidates Marco
Rubio of Florida and Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho have received four notices each, while New York's Democratic senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, got three. Thirteen other candidates have received one notice each. There are 75 major candidates still in Senate races nationwide.
Individuals can donate up to $2,400 per candidate for the
primary and another $2,400 for the general election.
The FEC says it often contacts candidates about such problems.
Most turn out to be accounting errors.
