Wall Street snub Schumer, Dems running for Senate as Elizabeth Warren surges: Some finance executives have recently told Chuck Schumer that they are holding back from donating to Democrats running for Senate in 2020 due to their concerns about Elizabeth Warren, sources say.
“They feel, rightly or wrongly, attacked. Not just that there will be higher taxes but that she is running her entire campaign as them being boogeymen,” says a person familiar with the deliberations.
The donors’ signals to Schumer come as they are increasingly frustrated with former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign, which has lagged behind Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
