Grouped By Party

Any candidate for President of the United States reporting a minimum of $200,000 in "Total Receipts" to the Federal Election Commission is hereby defined as a "principal candidate" for the purposes of 'The Green Papers' website. Such "principal candidates" are listed, per each Political Party (or other classification containing more than one Party), in a separate section ahead of other candidates for President of that same Party (or said multi-Party classification).

This listing includes candidates appearing on a state election authority's list of 2020 Presidential candidates; individuals who have filed a Form 1 Statement of Candidacy for President in 2020, filed a Form 2 Statement of Organization, and have $5000 or more in Total Receipts (frivolous submissions are excluded); and U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, and Governors who have declared they are running for President.

"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.
