(CNN) - The Federal Election Commission announced Friday increased contribution limits for the 2009-2010 federal campaign cycle.
Donors may now contribute $2,400 to a federal candidate during the primaries and an additional $2,400 during the general election. In the 2007-2008 cycle which just ended, the contribution limit for the primaries and general election was $2,300 each.
The limit for individual donors making contributions to a national party committee, such as the Democratic National Committee or the Republican National Committee, has also increased to $30,400, up from $28,500 in 2007-2008.
Overall, an individual contribute a combined maximum of $115,500 to candidates, PACs, and party committees during the 2009-2010 campaign cycle. The cumulative limit last cycle was $108,200.
Under the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law of 2002, individual contribution limits to federal candidates were increased from $1,000 to $2,000 and indexed for inflation.
