Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period from July 1 to Sept. 30, were due at the Federal Elections Commission on Friday night. Below is our list of fundraising numbers for House candidates in all the key 2016 races. That includes, among others:
• Races we expect to be competitive in next year's general elections
• Open seats in safe districts with contested primaries
• Under-the-radar contests where a candidate raised an unexpectedly high sum
• Incumbents who might face a credible primary challenge (or recently have)
• Incumbents who might retire or run for higher office
• Districts that might get redrawn soon in Florida or Virginia due to pending litigation
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 self-funding or 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.
• "CTD" indicates how much a candidate has raised cycle-to-date as of the end of the quarter. (Note that this does include self-funding.)
• "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.

. If you click through, you'll see an additional column on the right-hand side called "Transfers." This column shows monetary transfers from other political committees. Ultimately, all money received from all sources (including transfers) is reflected in every candidate's cash-on-hand totals, less spending. For our second quarter chart, see our roundup here
