Democrat Senator Cory Booker is coming under fire from other Democrats for his ties to Wall Street.
Left-wing political strategists said they are “wary” about Booker’s track record, and the effect it could have on his bid for the Oval office.
Back in 2012, Senator Booker publicly defended then Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney over attacks against Bain Capital.
At the time he said he would not indict “private equity”, in direct opposition to the narrative Democrats were pushing to smear Romney during the campaign.
Campaign finance records also show Booker has received large donations from Big Pharma, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street.
