Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period from July 1 through September 30, were due at the Federal Elections Commission on Tuesday night. Below is our list of fundraising numbers for House candidates in key races:

As always, all numbers are in thousands. An explanation of each column is below:
• "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 not 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. If you click through, you'll see an additional column called "Transfers" that shows monetary transfers from other political committees. Previously, we put together roundups for the first and second fundraising quarters as well.

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.

    $60K less than Gollin? Did a double take when I saw that. Given that she's already fighting an uphill fight in the primary geographically, I think she's not such a bet to be the nominee.

    Mcintyre did poorly but still doubled David Rouzer's total, the only Republican considering the race.

    And wow, it looks like Mia Love out raised every sitting Congressman and challenger other than Paul Ryan.

    Could you add a column showing the net change in CoH? That would be particularly useful for noticing which Reps or challengers have an uber high burn rate like Mia Love or actually spent more than they took in like John Barrow's challenger.

      that were thought to be serious:

      Emken (R) (CA-07): 63K
      Corbett (D) (CA-15): 37K
      Baca (D) (CA-31): 33K
      Nestande (R) (CA-36): 76K
      Greenberg (R) (CT-05): 37K
      Schlesinger (R) (FL-18): 15K
      Espero (D) (HI-01): 37K
      Kajtazovic (D) (IA-01): 37K
      Bost (R) (IL-12): 78K
      Harold (R) (IL-13): 73K
      Jensen (D) (KY-06): 52K
      Bentivolio (R) (MI-11): 59K
      Rouzer (R) (NC-07): 92K
      Guinta (R) (NH-01): 2K
      Canseco (R) (TX-23): 9K
      Patrick (D) (VA-02): 62K

      I welcome corrections (for instance, if any candidate only got in just before the fundraising deadline, or if it happens to be a low-cost district to compete in).

      But as far as I can tell, these are the candidates that we thought were running real campaigns, but their fundraising indicates they are not.

    where fundraising stood out to me are:

    ME-2: where Poliquin (R) had a decent haul, out raising both Democrats combined after coming off from a Senate seat loss and runningin a blue seat.

    MI-11: I think everyone expected Trott to out raise Bentivolio in the race for the GOP primary, but this level is quite amazing.

    •  Poliquin(R) put in some of his own money (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:
      Gay In Maine

      Poliquin is more on the Tea Party end of things, in a primary with former state senator Kevin Raye who is somewhat less of a nut. (Raye ran against Michaud for CD2 in '12.) Poliquin put in some $50K of his own considerable fortune to inflate his total.

      On the Dem side the field is still shaping up with Me. state majority leader Troy Jackson and State Senator Emily Cain declared, and Joe Baldacci ( brother to former US Rep and Governor John Baldacci) exploring the race.

      Jackson is a logger from way up in 'the county' and has some Union backing. Cain just won the endorsement of Emily's List and all of the help that entails (after the end of the quarter). This is apparently a rarity for them to be involved at this stage of a primary.

    Tim was already in trouble, but Pam Bynes is already off to the races with what she hauled in.  As an incumbent, of course Tim still has more cash on hand, but he's going to be fighting for his political life, this time.

    On Trott-Bentivolio, I've been rather bullshit on the tea party coming to his rescue, in the end, but if Trott keeps this up, Bentivolio won't even be able to get on television Trott will have bought up so much of the time. lol  Bad news for Democrats in the district, though.

  •  Is NJ-05 (Scott Garrett) not up there (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    because there's no news to report (somehow?) or because it's not considered a "key race" for this chart? Not to be too much of a homer, but it really should be on our radar - a big reason I'm interested in seeing it here in particular is because the most appealing thing about his challenger (Roy Cho) so far to me is his fundraising.

  •  hoping for info (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    It's probably on Kos somewhere, or if not hoping someone will know where--

    I live in a solidly D district (VA-8) and I've decide to contribute to Dems outside my district, even outside my state . I know Act Blue will be one way to do this. But, I'm not looking to use a shotgun approach. I want to target seats that may be new opportunities to convert to D, to take advantage of low R approval levels. So, suggestions on where I can find this info? Again, what I need is a targeted list. (I saw a Kos post earlier about 2 candidates in the upcoming election, but can't find it now)

    I'm also looking to support this conversion effort through volunteer work, but not canvassing for individuals, but rather by working for an organization with this same goal. It would need to be either home-based or in the DC area.

    Open to suggestions.

    We have two races in Ohio where the Republican has a challenger — Oh-14 which is highly winnable and has a great, energetic, hard-working progressive Democratic challenger, and Oh-06, which is a long shot and has an anti-choice Blue Dog on Steroids challenger.

    Steve Israel, the DCCC, and Americans United for Change are all in on the latter and ignoring the former.

    So I expected to see that the latter was absolutely smoking the former in fundraising, a reason suggested to me by some people for why the DCCC and its buddies were so ga ga about a race with a horrible candidate that was probably not winnable and ignoring Ohio's only swing district.

    This provides evidence that shoots that down. While both were outraised by the Republicans, Michael Wager's fundraising vis a vis David Joyce is pretty much the same as Blue Dog Garrison's against Bill Johnson.

    Anyone got any other theories about the DCCC's love affair with this woman who helped put John Kasich into office in 2010 by alienating Democratic women activists in Ohio who are STILL angry and are pissed at the DCCC now?

    Do we really want to jeopardize 2014 too just because someone somewhere has a thing for Garrison? (In 2010, it unfortunately was Governor Strickland. I have no idea whom it would be now).

    Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.

    Irv Halter is a retired general in a military district.  Not only is there Peterson Field and the Air Force Academy, there is NORAD.  Also there are a whole lot of military retired and a whole lot of military contractors.  This shutdown hit El Paso County hard - 55000 people were out of work.  

    Add to that the fact that the bill to reopen the government included funds for flood and fire relief.

    It will not be forgotten that Doug Lamborn not only voted against reopening the government for those 55000 people out of work (directly, not to mention the thousands more out of work because the 55000 could not spend anything), but he also voted against fire and flood relief.  This is a chance in a lifetime to wrest away a really really red district and turn it blue.
