Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) fundraising apparatus “is increasingly beginning to resemble that of George W. Bush.” The Huffington Post reports:

Through the end of January, McCain had received roughly $200,000 in personal contributions from 2004 Bush Rangers, those major contributors who each helped the president raise more than $200,000 in his reelection bid. About a fifth of that total has come in the last month alone, an analysis of campaign finance reports shows.

In addition, more than 30 of McCain’s “bundlers” — those donors who, as identified by the non-profit group Public Citizen, have pooled money for the senator — also served as Bush Rangers.

“McCain recently announced that Mercer Reynolds, the national finance chairman for Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign, was going to help him raise cash.”
