President Obama’s re-election campaign is pushing back against a New York Times report that suggests Mr. Obama may not be meeting his own standards when it comes to keeping corporate lobbyists out of his campaign.

At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who collect donations from multiple people on behalf of a campaign in order to generate big donations without violating the law — work in the lobbying industry though they are not technically registered as federal lobbyists, the Times reports. These key supporters, with ties to heavy-hitting industries like telecommunications and pharmaceuticals, have raised more than $5 million so far for Mr. Obama’s re-election.
