Washington - President Barack Obama’s top fundraisers brought in at least $186 million for the president’s re-election campaign.

Obama’s campaign released a list of 770 top donors on Saturday who brought in between $186.6 million and $268 million. The president’s re-election campaign raised nearly $1 billion to defeat Republican Mitt Romney.

Nearly 250 campaign bundlers each raised at least $500,000 for the president. Those donors included actors Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Eva Longoria, Wendell Pierce and film producer Harvey Weinstein.

Other top donors included musician Gwen Stefani, fashion editor Anna Wintour, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
