| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Obama's team on Friday released a new list of its biggest fundaisers, people who have raised at least $50,000 for the 2012 re-election.

None of the GOP presidential rivals has disclosed to the extent Obama has when it comes to "bundlers," well connected individuals who use their extensive network of wealthy friends and acquaintances to wrangle donations for a candidate. Bundlers are crucial to federal campaigns where individuals face contribution limits and no corporate donations may be accepted.

The third quarter Obama bundler list is HERE.
