Obama Fundraising Bundlers Get Place at State Dinner Table

By Dan Weil

Almost 50 of 364 guests at the White House state dinner for British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday night were bundlers for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Bundlers donate the legal maximum of their own money and then put together contributions from friends, family members, business associates, and other supporters.

The 41 money hawks among the guests account for at least $10.7 million, or 4 percent, of the approximately $250 million that the Obama campaign and Democratic Party have garnered for the election cycle thus far, ABC News reports.

Some of the most prominent guests included:

  • Movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who has bundled at least $500,000
  • Vogue magazine Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, who has bundled at least $500,000
  • Gary Hirschberg, CEO of Stoneyfield Farms, who has bundled between $100,000 and $200,000
  • Sally Susman, executive vice president of Pfizer, who has bundled at least $500,0000
  • Suzi LeVine, communications director for Microsoft, who has bundled between $200,000 and $500,000.

This wasn't the first instance in which Obama bundlers attended a White House state dinner. In October, at least six chowed down at a gala for South Korean President Lee Myung-bak.
