Bush Bundlers Raise Nearly $26 Million for McCain
By Matthew Mosk
The group Campaign Money Watch has reviewed the latest campaign filings by Sen. John McCain's campaign and found that while the presumptive GOP nominee is not spending much time with President Bush, he is spending plenty of time with Bush's bundlers.
According to the group's analysis, 124 fundraisers have raised money for both Bush and McCain. These former Pioneers and Rangers have raised a minimum of $25.95 million for McCain's presidential campaign, the analysis found.
"Senator McCain has been working hard to distance himself from an unpopular president, but he is relying on the same network of big money donors and fundraisers in his run for the White House," said David Donnelly, Director of Campaign Money Watch. "Given that McCain and Bush have both pulled water from the same well, it's hard to see how he would pursue policies other than those that have handsomely rewarded Bush's donors over the past eight years."
