The FEC has received a request for an advisory opinion from Dodd for President. The campaign has about $1.7 million in funds for the general held in the type of account specified in AO 2007-3 (Obama for President). The Dodd campaign has ideas about using the funds, so they’re asking the FEC about their plan. Per the Obama advisory opinion,
Candidates who would like to use different procedures or whose campaigns present different factual patterns than those presented here are encouraged to seek an advisory opinion from the Commission.
Without a quorum, the FEC cannot rule on the request.
