Question
A candidate or committee appears to have spent more than received. How can that be?
Answer

The candidate or committee likely had carry-forward cash from the previous election or year. That information is reported on the "overview" tab as the beginning balance. Candidates are permitted to transfer surplus campaign funds from one campaign to the next provided they are running for the same office.
