Per the Federal Election Commission website, “Each authorized committee of an individual running for the House or Senate must file quarterly reports.” However, “If the [House or Senate] campaign has not exceeded the $5,000 threshold [to meet the legal definition of a candidate for Federal office], it is not required to file reports.”

Also, every political committee must designate a Treasurer before it can accept contributions or spend money. Among many other things, Campaign Treasurers authorize expenditures or appoint someone else to authorize expenditures, either orally or in writing.
