Wall Street gives Hillary Clinton $27M, but love affair may not last

Hillary Clinton has been Wall Street's presidential darling so far by a large margin, but could be about to face some competition.

In her quest to be the nation's 45th president, the Democratic front-runner has taken in a stunning haul from the finance industry just shy of $27 million and counting, according to the latest filings as analyzed by OpenSecrets.org. The New York metro area specifically has contributed $40.9 million of the total $204.3 million she has raised.

One of the reasons Clinton has been able to stockpile so much Wall Street cash is that she has no competition in that regard. Her lone remaining challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has forsworn Wall Street cash and has taken no money from the finance industry. Sanders has launched withering criticism at Clinton, calling her a pawn of Wall Street power brokers for accepting lucrative speaking fees as well as campaign donations.

On the Republican side, presumptive nominee Donald Trump has raised a meager $283,040 of his $57.7 million total from finance.

"There's a feeling on Wall Street that she understands issues and knows a lot of the players," Valliere said. "An awful lot of people on Wall Street would tolerate her."

2. They'd prefer a genuine Republican, of course.

 

But they're pleased with Hillary as a consolation prize....she's already paid for.
