Louisiana GOP Becomes First State Republican Party to Accept Bitcoin

The Republican Party of Louisiana (LAGOP) is now accepting contributions in bitcoin via its official website, making it the first major state-level executive committee to turn to bitcoin payments for monetary support.

Only the Libertarian Party has made the same move – in Louisiana and Texas – following guidance from the US Federal Election Commission (FEC) determining that political campaigns and political action committees (PACs) can accept bitcoin as a form of in-kind donation under current federal election laws.
