To me it is not clear what you try to achieve. It is easier to help if you 
explain what variables you have and what you are trying to do using Stata, 
in particular describe an error if it occurs.

I assume you want to count the number of candidates in each state but I 
have no idea what "cnum" and "cname" mean and what "count" is. Is "count" 
a variable? Note that the syntax of the command count is different. And 
remember that "(" ")" parentheses in a by-statement have an important 
meaning: "The varlist1 (varlist2) syntax ... verifies that the data are 
sorted by varlist1 varlist2 and then performs a  by as if only varlist1 
were specified."
