The securities and investment industry — better known as Wall Street — has given $102 million to candidates for federal office during the current election cycle, the National Journal reports. The majority has gone to Republicans, though Democrats have pocketed $40 million from the industry. Through the end of April, President Obama has banked roughly $3 million from the financial industry. His Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, has more than doubled that total, hauling in $8.5 million.
