Footnotes

1. Figures in the summary tables and the detailed listings of candidates cover from January 1, 1997, or whenever the campaign registered during the year, through December 31, 1998 or the last report filed by the campaign as indicated.

2. Net receipt and net disbursement figures are total receipts and total disbursements, as reported by the campaigns, minus any money transferred between committees of the same campaign.

3. Columns entitled "Contrib from PACs" or "Non Party Contributions" are monies contributed, as reported by the PAC making the contribution. For candidates who won special elections in 1997 or 1998, these contributions have been divided between the special and regular election processes based upon the date of the contribution. If that date is more than 20 days after the special election then the contribution is included in the regular election information for that candidate.

4. On the Senate listings, the column titled "candidate support" includes contributions by the candidate as well as loans made or guaranteed by the candidate. The column titled "trans from other auth" includes monies transferred from House committees of candidates for the Senate, as well as proceeds from joint fundraising activity among several candidates or committees. Contributions from individuals and PACs made through these joint fundraising efforts are NOT included in the "individual contributions" or "Non Party Contributions" columns.

Open seat races are those in which the incumbent did not seek reelection. As a result, both general election candidates in any district where the incumbent was defeated in the primary are classified as challengers (see California 41st district). Districts where special elections have been held at times separate from the regular election calendar have been divided into two races. Special election activity appears in tables referring to all campaigns and is included in the open seat category. Regular election activity of special election winners appear in the incumbent category, and their activity begins with the report following the Post Special filing.

6. Percentage figures in Tables covering several election cycles represent the percentage of net receipts from each source and will not sum to 100 since not all sources of receipts are listed.

7. Detailed listings of candidates include all those House General Election candidates who reported receipts before December 31, 1998.

Some House members who are or were running for the Senate in ‘98 changed their former House campaign committees into their Senate campaign committees. Financial activity related solely to their Senate campaigns cannot be isolated. (See Bunning, [KY], Ensign [NV], Neumann [WI], and Smith [WA]).

9. The detailed listing for House candidates includes a column labeled "Candidate Support". This includes contributions from the candidate plus any loans made by or guaranteed by the candidate.

10. Party abbreviations in the listing of House campaigns are:

DEM - Democrat LIB - Libertarian

DFL - Democrat/Farmer/Labor (MN) PAF - Peace and Freedom

REP - Republican IND - Independent

RTL - Right to Life LBL - Liberal

11. Several candidates report significant debts at least some of which were incurred in previous election cycles. These include;

Robert Bennett (S-UT)

Christopher Cannon (H-UT)

Max Sandlin (H-TX)

R. Terry Everett (H-AL)

Norman Sisisky (H-VA)

Rodney Frelinghuysen (H-NJ)

Carl Mayer (H-NJ)

Brad Sherman (H-CA)

Paul Barby (H-OK)

Greg Ganske (H-IA)

Roscoe Bartlett (H-MD)

Activity of House Other Party candidates primarily reflects the campaigns of Bernard Sanders in Vermont, Randall Terry in New York, and Carl Mayer in New Jersey. Mayer and Terry participated in the general election as third party nominees after losing major party primaries.

Many candidates have reported significant candidate loan repayments during 1997-98. The original loans appear in total receipts for the campaign, and repayments are part of total disbursements.
