Factbox: Spending, fundraising in presidential race

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Financial reports of presidential campaigns and political action committees, or PACs, were filed on this week showing how much they raised and spent this campaign season, as of July 31.

The Federal Election Commission filings also offer a snapshot of who has been donating how much to the Super PACs, which operate independently from campaigns and can raise unlimited amounts from individuals, corporations and unions.

Below are some highlights of the FEC filings, with raised amounts reflecting total contributions and spent amounts reflecting operating and independent expenditures.
