Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period from April 1 to June 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 this year's general elections
- Open seats in otherwise 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
As always, all numbers are in thousands. The chart, and an explanation of each column, can be found 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 for the election cycle-to-date as of the end of the quarter. (This figure does not include self-funding or loans.)
- "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.
You can access our spreadsheet directly here. If you click through, you'll see three additional columns on the right-hand side:
- "1Q Raised" is the amount the candidate received in donations from donors during the first quarter of the year (Jan. 1 through March 31), not including any self-funding or loans. Due to changes in the FEC’s website, we were unable to provide this information at the end of the first quarter but are pleased to present it now.
- "Self Fund CTD" is the amount of direct contributions a candidate has made to his or her own campaign for the election cycle-to-date. This number, if any, is not counted in the "CTD" column.
- "Transfers" is the amount of 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. You can also find our earlier roundups for both the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2015.
