Facebook Co-Founder's Husband Sean Eldridge Files Papers to Run for Congress

EldridgeSean Eldridge, the husband of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, has filed papers in New York to run for Congress, Gawker reports:

According to the filings, Eldridge, a Democratic activist and the head of an investment firm, will be seeking a House seat in New York's 19th District, currently represented by Representative Chris Gibson. Gibson, a two-term Republican and former West Point professor, was reelected in November by a margin of 53 percent to 47 percent. But the 19th District also broke for Obama; it is one of the dozens of vulnerable districts Democratic strategists are gunning for in 2014 in an effort to reclaim the House.

  1. I think this is great, but I have been wondering - what are the rules for campaign financing and contributions or loans for campaigns from spouses? How are affected when a marriage isn't recognized federally?
