If Mike Bloomberg Is Nominated As Vice President, Can He Fund The Ticket?

I asked a veteran campaign finance lawyer for his thoughts:

A presidential candidate (who doesn't take public funds) can spend as much of his own money on his own candidacy, but given that the Presidential and VP candidates run as a ticket, the legal question would be whether the FEC (if we ever have an FEC again) would attribute Bloomberg's spending as as VP candidate as going towards electing his Presidential running-mate (and therefore would be subject to the contribution limits). It's a totally open and novel question.
