Campaign Finance Statistics

This page provides access to analytical data tables that summarize campaign financial activity by filer type, election cycle and reporting period.

Important Note: Data tables for congressional candidate committees, national party committees, political action committees, independent expenditures and electioneering communications are available for each semi-annual period in non-election years, and available quarterly in election years. Presidential data tables are available semi-annually beginning in the year preceding presidential elections, and quarterly in presidential election years.

      Data Prior to 1989:
      The data prior to 1989 is not available in the same format as later data. In order to provide the public with the most reliable campaign finance summary data for earlier election cycles, we've organized historical data summary press releases by election cycle and committee type for election cycles prior to the 1989-1990 cycle. We've also made available all independent expenditure filings in Excel and PDF formats.
