Clinton's Strong Ties to Wall Street


Hillary Clinton, as well as many of the other presidential candidates, have forged strong ties with Wall Street, both financially and politically.

CNBC has compiled a list of who has gotten what from the world of hedge funds and private equity, and who are Clinton's main backers on Wall Street.

Most of Clinton's backers have given the $2,000 limit, but their work as "bundlers"--or supporters--matters more. There are no numbers for how much money they have gotten other people to contribute.

Contributions from Hedge Funds/Private Equity:

Mitt Romney: $797,325

Chris Dodd: $726,950

Hillary Clinton: $703,600

Barak Obama: $652,105

Rudy Giuliani: $644,750
