Wall Street Democrats Shutting Their Wallets to Senate Democrat Candidates Due to Fears of Elizabeth Warren Becoming the Presidential Candidate

Joe Biden's a socialist too.

So what's the problem, Venture Socialists?

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.

No offense, assholes, but if you're going to consistently spend a billion dollars every four years to get a socialist candidate elected, it's about time that you, the pipers calling this tune, started to pay for the tune.

If you're going to keep agitating for socialism, Wall Street liberals, I say: You shall have socialism good and hard. With some not-entirely-tacit support from the right.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

I'm tired of this class of people always pushing socialism and tyranny but then demanding that this class alone be protected and insulated from the politics they push on the country.

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.


...

Some finance executives have recently told Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that they are, for the moment, holding back from donating to Democrats running for Senate in 2020 due to their concerns with Warren becoming a front-runner in the race for the party’s presidential nomination, according to people familiar with the conversations. These people spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the private nature of the talks.

22 These concerns by Wall St denizens are very real.

This isn't a push article, I am hearing the same thing.

41 So you're saying the donors have an expectation of a quid pro quo?

Lots of that going around these days.
