Wall Street's 3 Democratic favorites for 2020
Three 2020 Democratic candidates are "generating most of the buzz" among Wall Street donors: Joe Biden, Sen. Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg, the New York Times reports.
Driving the news: Nine candidates over nine days will hold fundraisers in New York, racing to bring in cash ahead of a June 30 filing deadline.
Between the lines: "[T]hose who care most about picking a winner are gravitating toward Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris, while donors are swooning over Mr. Buttigieg enough to open their wallets and bundling networks for him," per the Times.
- The three candidates most geographically aligned with the state of New York — Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio — are not as high on the donor list.
