the Commission and each other candidate in the election. The 
notification shall be made in writing within 48 hours after the 
contribution or expenditure involved is made.
    ``(2) In any case described in paragraph (1), any person who is 
otherwise permitted under this Act to make contributions to such other 
candidate may make contributions in excess of any otherwise applicable 
limitation on such contributions, to the extent that the total of such 
excess contributions accepted by such other candidate does not exceed 
the total of contributions or expenditures from personal funds referred 
to in paragraph (1).''.
