Some Democrats Running In 2020 Are Raking In Big Cash Donations From Wall Street

Pete Buttigieg, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are taking in a lot of campaign cash from Wall Street. Isn’t that forbidden or something by people on the left?

Will Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren call them out for this?

CNBC reports:

Biden, Harris and Buttigieg rack up donations from big bank executives on Wall Street

Executives at Wall Street’s biggest banks have begun throwing financial support to their early favorites in the 2020 Democratic presidential field: Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.

All three candidates combined to receive contributions during the second quarter from at least 15 bank executives from Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and Bank of America, according to Federal Election Commission records.

The donations represent just a fraction of the millions the candidates brought in during the three-month frame. Yet they provide clues about where these well-heeled donors could place their support as the campaign barrels toward the first voting contests of the season, which begin in February.

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, the other top candidates in the field of 20-plus, have set the tone in the campaign by calling for breaking up big banks and eliminating tax loopholes that favor the wealthy.

Likewise, Biden, Harris and Buttigieg have all slammed Wall Street, vowed to close the wealth gap and pledged to strengthen the middle class. They haven’t unveiled specific policy proposals for contending with big banks and Wall Street, however.
