Winslow presses FEC on contributions from same-sex spouses

Senate hopeful Daniel B. Winslow, working to differentiate himself from his two Republican primary rivals, filed a request with the Federal Election Commission on Friday seeking guidance on how to categorize contributions from legally married same-sex couples.

Under current FEC guidelines, each person can contribute a maximum of $2,600 of their own money to a candidate for the primary election. But a married couple, drawing on a joint account, can contribute up to $5,200 for the primary, regardless of whether it’s earned by one or both spouses.
