Now for pointers to the candidates for US Senate. These will presented in alphabetic order. The candidates name will be a link to a list of available reports at the Federal Election Commission. Donations will link to a list of individual and PAC contributors. According to this page, the Senate files all reports in paper, so links to a PDF of the candidates’s pre-primary will be given. Will be unable to give links to its contents, such as the ever interesting list of campaign expenses.
The numbers come from the FEC’s summary pages which cover all activity from January 1, 2007 to May 14, 2008.
