The Trail: A Daily Diary of Campaign 2008

Bundlers By Another Name

Hillary Clinton has her Hillraisers, Rudolph Giuliani has his Team Captains, and an aide to Republican Mitt Romney says those supporters raising big dollars for his bid will aquire the title of Founder ($250,000), Statesman ($100,000), or Patriot ($50,000).

And if you want to know who these Founders and Statesman are, there's a new website devoted to cataloging the identities of those who are gaining influence with this year's crop of presidential contenders. The national non-profit Public Citizen unveiled the website Thursday.

The site identifies nearly 1,900 individuals who are funneling money from other donors to the candidates. Of these, more than 230 were bundlers for President George W. Bush in at least one of his presidential campaigns or for either Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) or former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean in 2004.
