As Megan R. Wilson of The Hill writes
K Street is banking on Hillary Clinton, with more than twice as many Washington lobbyists donating to the former secretary of State’s presidential campaign than any other candidate.
While many lobbyists are holding their pocketbooks in the early stages of the 2016 election cycle, Clinton — the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination — received at least $625,703 from 316 registered lobbyists and corporate PACs during the first half of the year, according to disclosure form
These are the “everyday people,” who get up every morning and put on $3,000 suits, drive to work $80,000 automobiles, eat $300 expense account lunches, and return to hearth and home full with the satisfactions of good and honest labor.
And they know they can count on Hillary Clinton, as president, to do the right thing.
In an interesting footnote,
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has eschewed the involvement of lobbyists and corporations in elections, only took $420.
