"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.
When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.
If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
