Occupy Barack: Obama Has Raised More from Wall Street than All the GOP Contenders, Combined
...is more accurate than we thought. Obama even raked in more cash from Bain Capital, which Mitt Romney founded, than Romney did.
Despite frosty relations with the titans of Wall Street, President Obama has still managed to raise far more money this year from the financial and banking sector than Mitt Romneyor any other Republican presidential candidate, according to new fundraising data.Obama’s key advantage is his ability to collect bigger checks from fewer donors, because he raises money for both his own campaign committee and for the Democratic National Committee, which will aid in his reelection effort. As a result, Obama has brought in more money from employees of banks, hedge funds and other financial service companies than all the other GOP candidates combined, according to a Washington Post analysis of contribution data.
Let's see...Obama is the national student loan banker now, and he's in Wall Street's hip pocket. But the occupiers seem to want him re-elected.
