At the federal level, the primary source of campaign funds is individuals ...
A consequence of the limitation upon personal contributions from any one individual ($2400 for each election, with a total of $4800 for a primary and general election as of 2009) is that campaigns seek out "bundlers," people who can gather contributions from many individuals in an organization or community, and present the sum to the campaign. Campaigns often recognize these bundlers with honorary titles and, in some cases, exclusive events featuring the candidate.
Bundling has always existed in various forms, but has become more important with the enactment of limits on contributions at the federal level and in most states in the 1970s. EMILY's List, for example, was involved in early bundling-like activities.

This time Romney hopes for about half that sum, Gestetner said.
There was also a recent Romney fundraiser in Lawrence, L.I., as well as Manhattan events for Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Utah governor John Huntsman Jr., showing that Orthodox Jews are literally banking heavily on the race to unseat Barack Obama.
Expect a visit soon by surging candidate Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House, now that Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind has been hinting at an endorsement. ...White House for Sale: http://www.whitehouseforsale.org/formerCand.cfmStealth PACs http://www.citizen.org/Page.aspx?pid=4542

…. Fox News Channel has been a key outlet pushing the Jewish neoconservative agenda that lies behind the Iraq War and which animates both the administration of George W. Bush and the "new conservatism" that embraces aggressive Zionism and multiracialism.
Murdoch is nominally a Gentile, but there is some uncertainty about his ancestry and he has vigorously supported Zionism and other Jewish causes throughout his life. (Historian David Irving has published information from a claimed high-level media source who says that Murdoch's mother, Elisabeth Joy Greene, was Jewish, but we have not been able to confirm this.) Murdoch's number two executive is Peter Chernin, who is president and chief operating officer—and a Jew. ….
