    we have some extra funds (for a change!) & are thinking about who to give it to -- local or national races, or both.

      to your question: http://www.dailykos.com/...

      If you're considering donating to the Obama campaign, now is the time, imo. (I was on the call as well.)

          $2,500 per election to a Federal candidate or the candidate's campaign committee.2 Notice that the limit applies separately to each election. Primaries, runoffs and general elections are considered separate elections.
          $5,000 per calendar year to a PAC. This limit applies to a PAC (political action committee) that supports Federal candidates. (PACs are neither party committees nor candidate committees. Some PACs are sponsored by corporations and unions--trade, industry and labor PACs. Other PACs, often ideological, do not have a corporate or labor sponsor and are therefore called nonconnected PACs.) PACs use your contributions to make their own contributions to Federal candidates and to fund other election-related activities.
          $10,000 per calendar year to a State or local party committee. A State party committee shares its limits with local party committees in that state unless a local committee's independence can be demonstrated.
          $30,800 per calendar year to a national party committee. This limit applies separately to a party's national committee, House campaign committee and Senate campaign committee.
          $117,000 total biennial limit. This biennial limit places a ceiling on your total contributions, as explained below.
          $100 in currency (cash) to any political committee. (Anonymous cash contributions may not exceed $50.) Contributions exceeding $100 must be made by check, money order or other written instrument.

          If you donate to the Obama campaign through Act Blue, dkos gets some credit and bragging rights to having stimulated the donation.  But the money goes to the same place.

          I dont give that much in total $ but I give directly to barackobama.com and through Actblue, also I give to dccc and dscc and a little bit to MoveOn....

          Thanks for whatever you can give to whomever is on our side!
