#' Get Party Expenditures for Federal Candidates
#'
#' Schedule F shows all special expenditures a national or state party committee makes in connection with the general election campaigns of federal candidates
#'
#' These coordinated party expenditures do not count against the contribution limits but are subject to other limits, these limits are detailed in Chapter 7 of the FEC Campaign Guide for Political Party Committees.
#'
#' @param data A dataframe or tibble. Usually this will be the returned result of search_candidates(). If a column is called 'candidate_id', get_candidate_totals() will return results for all IDs in that column and will attempt to join data to the result by candidate_id. Either this argument or candidate_ids is required
#' @param api_key API key for https://api.data.gov. Get one at https://api.data.gov/signup.
#' @param data_structure A character describing how you want OpenFEC results. Options are 'tidy', 'list', or 'both.' Choose list for raw results.
#' @param payee_name
#' @param cycle Filter records to only those that were applicable to a given two-year period.The cycle begins with an odd year and is named for its ending, even year
#' @param sort_null_only Toggle that filters out all rows having sort column that is non-null
#' @param sort_hide_null Hide null values on sorted column(s).
#' @param max_date Maximum date
#' @param candidate_id A unique identifier assigned to each candidate registered with the FEC. If a person runs for several offices, that person will have separate candidate IDs for each office.
#' @param sort Provide a field to sort by. Use - for descending order.
#' @param min_amount Filter for all amounts greater than a value.
#' @param min_date Minimum date
#' @param min_image_number
#' @param image_number The image number of the page where the schedule item is reported
#' @param max_amount Filter for all amounts less than a value.
#' @param committee_id A unique identifier assigned to each committee or filer registered with the FEC. In general committee id's begin with the letter C which is followed by eight digits.
#' @param max_image_number
#' @param line_number Filter for form and line number using the following format: FORM-LINENUMBER. For example an argument such as F3X-16 would filter down to all entries from form F3X line number 16.
