Small bucks, big bucks

Here’s a summary of the finances of the campaign committees for candidates in the 2018 general election in North Carolina’s 10th and 11th congressional districts, as reported to the Federal Election Commission. Figures are for 2017-18.

ABOUT THE NUMBERS: Small donor figures, included in the overall totals for individual donors, reflect those who gave less than $200 per person. They don’t include donations funneled through a political action committee. The PAC and party groups totals include transfers from other political committees related to campaigns, including $976,264 a McHenry PAC gave his campaign.

Figures for the top states for donations were computed from data. They don’t include individuals’ contributions of less than $200 because information about those donors’ state of origin is not reported. Typically, a candidate’s home state accounts for a high percentage of such donations.

Money in the bank is as of Dec. 31, 2018. Both McHenry and Meadows began the 2017-18 election cycle with money left over from previous campaigns. Brown’s negative balance may be due to small errors in his campaign’s reports.
