On Monday, Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign asked the Federal Election Commission for permission to collect donations for a $1.3 million hair donation campaign.
The campaign requested that the FEC accept the donation as a contribution and would not be required to report it on its financial reports.
Bush’s campaign says the donation request was submitted on Sept. 9, 2016, two days before the last presidential debate.
It would appear to be a departure from Bush’s previous donations.
On Thursday, the Federal Trade Commission ruled that Bush’s $1 million donation was permissible.
Bush has since pledged to give the remaining $1,300 to charity.
He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Bush campaign says it has asked for donations to the Hair Donation Initiative since March 15, 2016.
It was the first donation it had received from the foundation.
“The Bush campaign has raised $2.2 million in the last three months of 2016,” the Bush campaign said in a statement.
“Our campaign has also spent $3.1 million of the $5.6 million that it has raised so far.”
The Bush camp did not provide a breakdown of how much of the money it had raised was for the Hair Gift Initiative.
According to the FEC’s donation disclosure form, the organization is a nonprofit organization with an address at 2916 South Main Street, Suite 200, Houston, Texas 77023.
Bush is the former governor of Florida, a Republican.
His campaign said it was collecting donations for the campaign, which was created in 2013.
Bush was first elected governor of the state in 2006 and won re-election in 2010.
