But a significant chunk of that fundraising haul came to the campaign though big-money donors who raised serious cash for Obama over the last three months. On Friday, the Obama campaign voluntarily released a list of 244 "volunteer fundraisers" who raised at least $50,000 apiece for Obama's re-election bid.
The tally disclosed 27 donors who bundled contributions of $500,000 or more--a list that included well-known figures like Vogue Magazine editor Anna Wintour, former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine and Hollywood producer Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Another 41 donors raised between $200,000 and $500,000, 89 raised between $100,000 and $200,000 while 87 raised between $50,000 and $100,000.Read More »from Anna Wintour raised at least $500k for Obama’s re-election bid
