Romney campaign raises $12 million from just 90 donors, for years the biggest-money Democratic-leaning independent group, raised $4 million in the first half of 2011.

The donations to the Restore Our Future “super-PAC” supplement the $18 million raised by Mr. Romney’s official presidential campaign in the second quarter. Two-thirds of that money came from donors giving $2,500, the maximum allowed by law for a presidential primary campaign.

Those donations were gathered in part by highly-influential persons known as “bundlers,” who tap their social and business networks for donations on behalf of a candidate. Mr. Romney has declined to disclose the names of his bundlers, despite doing so in 2008.
