Yesterday might have been the deadline to file your taxes, but if you were a House candidate, your deadline to file your financial report for 1Q was still April 15. Which means...it's time for the quarterly house fundraising roundup!

As always, all numbers are in thousands. "Raised" is the amount the candidate has received in donations from outside donors during the first quarter, not including any loans. "CoH" stands for total cash-on-hand at the end of the quarter (March 31). "CTD" indicates a candidate's contributions raised cycle-to-date, also as of March 31. We're also happy to bring you two new columns, "Self Contr." and "Self Loans," which are the amount of direct contributions made and the loans given by the candidate him/herself; this helps us truly gauge the spending power of a given candidate.

Finally, there are rows in gray, representing candidates who are still, unfortunately, filing quarterly reports in hard copy.

There are several exceptions to the March 31 rule:

  • AZ-08 special election candidates, who filed pre-special primary reports for the period ending March 28. The district numbers here are marked with asterisks.
  • Candidates in Pennsylvania, who filed pre-primary reports for the period ending April 4.
  • Candidates in Utah, who filed pre-convention reports for the period ending April 1.
  • Additionally, for candidates in states that have already held a primary, these figures represent their pre-primary and April quarterly reports combined.

Please let us know in comments if we are missing anyone notable. For our 4Q 2011 roundup, click here. For our 3Q 2011 roundup, click here. For our 2Q 2011 roundup, click here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    instead of 2014. JPKIII would be in the driver's seat if there were an open Senate election in 4 years rather than 2.

    Although I guess there is always the chance Kerry goes for another term and Kennedy can run for his open seat in 2020.

    spent about $170,000 in 1Q on "direct mail imaging & printing" from "Eberle Associates", assuming I'm not double-counting--a large part of the roughly $252,000 he spent in 1Q (I can never tell which line I'm supposed to read).  Meanwhile, he raised $315,466.42.  I wouldn't take his fundraising "success" at face value.  (I've also seen claims that he used to go with the famed BMW Direct--does anyone remember that?)

  •  And as for Joe Carvin (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    MichaelNY

    His high COH is entirely because he loaned himself (loaned, not donated) a million dollars.  Similarly, Joe Coors spent most of what he raised (and he raised a respectable amount, unlike Carvin), but donated himself $218,247.  By the way, I don't think Coors out-raised Perlmutter except if you count his donation to himself--which is surely relevant in terms of how much money he'll have, but I also look at fundraising to see how much support a candidate has (from some mixture of locals, activists, and elite groups).

    I really appreciate these posts, btw, I don't mean to nitpick--just adding my thoughts.

    Boy, I hope good fund-raising numbers indicate we have an actual shot at retiring the obnoxious GOP freshman Congressvarmint.

    They tend to get harder to beat, once they've won a second term.  Look at Cathy McMorris Rodgers, WA-07 - 4 terms so far, a spot in House caucus leadership... with a bible-college education. We ran a great candidate against her in her sophomore run, but he started late, and her win that time was the lock on the seat.

    looks like our candidates are at least raising the money they'd need to be competitive, with a few exceptions.  Whether we take back the House will depend on the national mood, but at least our candidates seem poised to capitalize if things go our way.

        Recommended by:

        Orange County's political identification is changing, and it's changing even more rapidly in and around Irvine.  Kang will need to work his ass off (from what I've seen, his precinct walks every weekend seem to show he is willing to), and if he does that, with a little luck, I could see Campbell being ousted.

        It's not like Campbell is exactly loved by his constituants either.  I think it being a presidential year, Obama will run up the numbers in California, and definitely make these kinds of districts competitive.

        What Kang lacks in monetary power, I hope he makes it up with people power

        My girlfriend is currently interning for the Kang campaign, and I will definitely be putting in some hours this when I finish up this semester of College.

          if Kang were raising good money, I'd say ok, Leans R but an upset can't be ruled out. With his weak fundraising, though, the possibility of such an outcome is growing more and more distant.

    He's a good ol' boy like Shuler, of course, but we're going to need someone like that to keep that district (now the most conservative one in North Carolina).  Did Shuler hook him up with some cash (he was Shuler's chief of staff) or did he raise all that himself?  Impressive, though, he's killing the so-called Republican frontrunner Mark Meadows.
