The National Institute on Money In State Politics downloaded the campaign contribution database from the Utah Division of Elections web site. Researchers removed funds ($166,603) raised by candidates who did not run (DNR) for office in 1998, as well as refunds of campaign expenses that were not properly counted as income. Utahs 1998 elections consisted of both House and Senate races, but the only statewide races were for the statewide School Board. The School Board candidates raised a total of $36,205. The Institute removed contributions raised by the School Board candidates to focus its analysis on the legislative races.
