By Fredreka Schouten President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democrat hoping to unseat him, are raking in millions for their campaigns at high-dollar events but have not fully disclosed details about the elite fundraisers who collect cash on their behalf, campaign-finance watchdogs say.

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democrat hoping to unseat him, are raking in millions for their campaigns at high-dollar events but have not fully disclosed details about the elite fundraisers who collect cash on their behalf, campaign-finance watchdogs say. With the exception of federal lobbyists who serve as campaign bundlers, federal law does not require presidential candidates to release their full lists of the political fundraisers who help "bundle" together donations from friends, relatives and business associates to underwrite costly White House campaigns. Obama, for instance, publicly updated his list of fundraisers quarterly and divided them into broad tiers, ranging from those who had collected more than $720,000 (US$500,000) apiece to those who collected between $72,000 (US$50,000) and $145,000 (US$100,000) each.
