GOP presidential candidates yet to disclose major fundraisers

Nevada state Democrats challenged Republican presidential candidates to disclose their largest campaign fundraisers, something President Obama did on July 15.

State Senator Mo Denis, D., North Las Vegas, made the request during a teleconference with reporters last week. Denis said former President Bush and 2008 Republican nominee John McCain released their major fundraiser lists, as did Mitt Romney during his 2008 presidential campaign.

According to Denis, Obama released his list because he "has always believed that sharing the name of major fundraisers is a critical step in making campaigns more transparent and accountable."

Nevada is one of the first early caucus states for Republicans in February 2012.
