A campaign watchdog is questioning whether Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s newest TV ad may violate federal campaign finance laws.
The ad, a positive ad on Kasich’s history of balancing budgets, is scheduled to begin airing Tuesday in New Hampshire. The ad was purchased by “New Day for America,” the 527 nonprofit group that supports Kasich.
But Tuesday is also the day that Kasich is expected to declare that he is running for president, and the Campaign Legal Center, a Washington, D.C. campaign watchdog, said it is worried that the ad may violate laws aimed at limiting contributions to presidential campaigns.
