Note: The totals in the “cumulative totals” column of the report are incorrect in Arkansas’s online system because the Arkansas filing website does not take into account any reporting before Q3 2017. Candidates, such as Lieutenant Governor Griffin, who have been active since before Q3 2017, do not have accurate cumulative totals represented in the online filing system. A report with the correct cumulative totals is included with this release.
