* This figure does not match the total of individual contributions because of accounting fees relating to PACs and the return of corporate contributions, which the NMMA cannot accept under campaign finance laws.

** The negative  figure for Rep. Boehner represents an accounting correction. Several years ago, NMMA’s PAC reported a disbursement to Boehner, but the check was never cut.

*** This money was given to an exploratory committee at a time when Giuliani was considered a potential U.S. Senate candidate.
