Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period of Jan. 1 through March 31, were due at the Federal Elections Commission on Monday night. Because it's early in the cycle, our roundup below includes fundraising numbers from every House candidate who actually filed a report (incumbents, challengers and open seat candidates alike):
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.
