Finance industry continues to fuel Mitt Romney
New fundraising figures disclosed over the weekend reveal what most of us probably knew already about the presidential race: Major donors in the finance sector are fueling Mitt Romney’s campaign, while Barack Obama continues to look elsewhere for campaign cash.
Despite sending nearly $16 million to Obama’s campaign in 2008, Wall Street (also known as the securities and investment industry) has shelled out just $2.8 million so far for Obama. Romney, meanwhile has pulled in $8.1 million from the industry.
