Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period from April 1 through June 30, were due at the Federal Elections Commission on Monday night. We've narrowed down our list to competitive races (both primary and general), as well as potential open seats (due to either retirements or bids for other offices):

As always, all numbers are in thousands. An explanation of each column:
• "CD" stands for congressional district.

• "Raised" is the amount the candidate has received in donations from donors during the quarter, not including any loans.

• "Self Fund" is the amount of direct contributions a candidate has made to his or her own campaign. This number, if any, is also counted in the "Raised" column.

• "Self Loan" is the amount of any loans a candidate has made to his or her own campaign. This number, if any, is not counted in the "Raised" column.

• "Spent" is the amount of money the campaign has spent during the quarter.

• "CoH" stands for total cash-on-hand at the end of the quarter.

• "CTD" indicates a candidate's contributions raised cycle-to-date, as of the end of the quarter.

To access our spreadsheet directly, click here. Over on the far right, you'll also see two additional columns, one labeled "Fundraising Period" and the other "Transfers." The former shows any exceptions to the April 1 through June 30 reporting period (some candidates have filed reports covering shorter or longer timeframes, for various reasons). The latter shows transfers from other committees.

10:38 AM PT: On our list, 10 incumbents were outraised by their challengers, whose names are in parenthesis (we didn't include Jo Bonner in AL-01, who has already announced his intention to resign, or Mel Watt in NC-12, whose nomination to the Federal Housing Finance Authority is still pending):

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.
