Mitt Romney has been raising a lot of money from the financial sector in recent months as he criticizes a historic package of new industry regulations signed by President Obama last year, according to campaign financial reports filed last week.
The largest corporate sources of money for Romney are mostly finance industry leaders , including Morgan Stanley and Bank of America. Goldman Sachs employees have given nearly a quarter of a million dollars in contributions.
Romney led the other Republican presidential contenders on the fundraising front during the second quarter, raising more than $18 million, while none of his competitors crossed the $5 million mark. The keys to his success appear to be large donors and contributors from the New York area.
