Top Dem Raises Twice As Much From Goldman Sachs As From Constituents

Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) received nearly twice as much money from Goldman Sachs bankers in New York as from individuals in her home state of North Dakota over the past three months, according to her campaign’s most recent filing.

Heitkamp, currently gearing up to run for reelection in a state President Trump carried by 36 percent, was heavily reliant on sources outside North Dakota during the last fundraising quarter, during which only $21,318 of the $739,218 raised came from North Dakotans.

Nearly twice as much money—$39,600—came from employees of financial giant Goldman Sachs alone, including a maximum contribution from Harvey Schwartz, the firm’s president.

Also outpacing North Dakotans were New Yorkers, who supplied $191,408 to Heitkamp, and Californians, who supplied $124,452.
