Lawyers and law firms contributed the most 'bundlers' of any industry in the 2008 election for most of the presidential campaigns, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington organization that tracks federal elections. Bundlers are fundraisers who bring in a specific amount of money for a particular candidate. They have been particularly important during the 2008 presidential election, which has attracted significant sums of money despite limits on campaign contributions.
