- "CD" stands for congressional district.
- Under "Party", a designation including "-inc" refers to an incumbent.
- "3Q Raised" is the amount the candidate has received in donations from donors during the quarter, including transfers from other committees but 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. In practical terms, such loans function identically to traditional self-funding as described above, except that campaign donations may be used to repay loans.
- "Raised 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 the campaign has available at the end of the quarter.
You can access the chart above in spreadsheet form here. In addition, we have also compiled a separate spreadsheet that details the fundraising numbers for every major-party candidate who will appear on the ballot this November (and who filed an FEC report) in all 435 congressional districts. If you click through to either of these, you'll see two additional columns on the right-hand side:
- "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 "Raised CTD" column.
- "Transfer" is the amount of monetary transfers from other political committees. As noted above, this number, if any, is counted in the "3Q Raised" column.
Ultimately, all money received from all sources is reflected in every candidate's cash-on-hand totals, less spending. You can also check out our roundups for previous quarters from this election cycle: 1Q 2017 | 2Q 2017 | 3Q 2017 | 4Q 2017 | 1Q 2018 | 2Q 2018.
