ABC News' Emily Friedman (@EmilyABC) reports:

Mitt Romney made more than half a million dollars in the second quarter thanks to a group of five high-profile bundlers, according to the campaign's second quarter FEC filings, released today.

The Romney camp had already reported raking more than $18 million during the second quarter, and today's report sheds more insight into how they did it.

Six lobbyists at five different organizations including The Fiorentino Group, Dutko Worldwide, The Rath Group, Barclay's and Wayne Berman's — a former supporter of Sen. John McCain –  Ogilvy Government Relations, raised the $500K.

Dutko Worldwide is led by Ron Kaufman, a longtime Massachusetts republican who worked in the George H.W. Bush White House.  The Rath Group is run by longtime New Hampshire republican Tom Rath, who was a senior adviser on Romney's 2008 campaign.

Barclay's brought in the largest sum of money: $167,800.

The bundled money from the lobbyists totals at $517,450.
