Quarterly fundraising reports for federal candidates, covering the period of April 1 through June 30, were due at the Federal Elections Commission on Sunday night. Below is our roundup of fundraising numbers from key House races across the country:
As always, all numbers are in thousands. An explanation of each column:
• “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. Note that 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.
• “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.
For various reasons (generally having to do with primaries), some reports reflect time periods that start before April 1 or end after June 30. You can check those out in our full spreadsheet by looking at the “Start” and “End” columns.
Please let us know in comments if we are missing anyone notable. You can also take a look at our prior roundups from this cycle: 1Q 2012 | 4Q 2011 | 3Q 2011 | 2Q 2011. We’ll also be bringing you a list of challengers who have out-raised incumbents (or have more cash-on-hand) in a separate post.
2:37 PM PT: One thing I should add is that many states have conducted primaries, conventions, and runoffs during the last few months. Because of that, many second quarter reports only cover part of the quarter. To offer a better apples-to-apples comparison, we’ve consolidated all fundraising reports between April 1 and June 30 to give an accurate picture of each candidate’s total fundraising for the period. For instance, Democrat Joe Miklosi in CO-06 filed both a pre-primary and a quarterly report. Adding his fundraising together for both of those reports gives a total of $ 337K.
