Bush supporters raising big bucks for McCain
Not like its a big surprise or anything. David Donnelly, Director of Campaign Money Watch does make an excellent point, though:

According to the groups analysis, 124 fundraisers have raised money for both Bush and McCain. These former Pioneers and Rangers have raised a minimum of $25.95 million for McCains presidential campaign, the analysis found.

Senator McCain has been working hard to distance himself from an unpopular president, but he is relying on the same network of big money donors and fundraisers in his run for the White House, said David Donnelly, Director of Campaign Money Watch. Given that McCain and Bush have both pulled water from the same well, its hard to see how he would pursue policies other than those that have handsomely rewarded Bushs donors over the past eight years.
