Obama Releases Names of Top Fundraisers

Friday, 15 Jul 2011 05:07 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has attracted nearly 250 elite fundraisers who have raised at least $34.95 million combined since April.

The Obama campaign is disclosing its list of 244 so-called "bundlers," often wealthy, well-connected donors who raise campaign cash from friends and business associates.

The campaign has emphasized its more than 550,000 donors and note that Obama does not take money from political action committees or Washington lobbyists. But the list underscores the role of high-dollar bundlers in Obama's campaign. During the 2008 campaign, 560 bundlers raised at least $76.5 million for Obama, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Obama raised a combined $86 million for his campaign and the Democratic National Committee from April through June.
