Cam­paigns aren’t re­quired to dis­close their bund­lers - the “fin­an­ci­ers, phil­an­throp­ists, polit­ic­al strategists and the hun­dreds of oth­er wealthy sup­port­ers who have raised money for their pres­id­en­tial cam­paigns” - but only former Sec­ret­ary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton (D) and former Flor­ida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) op­ted to do so.

Sen. Marco Ru­bio’s (R-FL) cam­paign said they will “dis­close what we’re re­quired to” and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who said he will re­lease their names in the past, and his cam­paign said they have no timetable for re­lease. Sev­er­al oth­er cam­paigns de­clined to com­ment.

“Fed­er­al law doesn’t re­quire can­did­ates to re­lease bund­lers’ names and how much they col­lect, un­less they are fed­er­al lob­by­ists and raise at least $17,600. But sev­er­al can­did­ates have op­ted to do so over the years, in­clud­ing Pres­id­ent Obama, former Pres­id­ent George W. Bush and the 2008 Re­pub­lic­an nom­in­ee” Sen. John Mc­Cain (R-AZ).
