We gather election results from a range of sources and link them to campaign records. That data is summarized in this table. You can read more about how we generate this data here.
Unique ID maintained by Deck representing a specific campaign. We define a campaign as an instance of a specific candidate running for a specific office or party nomination. If the same candidate ran in a primary and general election in both 2018 and 2020, they would have four campaign entries across those contests.
