Schumer, favorite senator of Wall Street and K Street, takes over Senate Dems: When Senate Democrats chose their new leader, they selected the favorite senator of K Street and Wall Street, Chuck Schumer, an unparalleled expert at blending policymaking and fundraising. Schumer's new job, Senate Minority Leader, will mostly involve holding together the Democratic majority to filibuster GOP measures in the Senate, along with raising money to stave off further GOP Senate gains in 2018. Campaign finance data show Schumer as the favorite Senator, in either party, of lobbyists, bankers, and hedge funders. Schumer raised more from lobbyists than any U.S. Senator or senate candidate, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. (This excludes Marco Rubio's presidential fundraising.) Schumer's also the top Senate recipient of money ($1.97 million) this election from Wall Street. Schumer was number one among hedge funds and private equity.

Schumer: I work out with Sessions, but I won't vote for him: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., signaled he would likely vote against Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., for attorney general over his support for placing more constraints on immigration and his opposition to some elements of the most recent Voting Rights Act renewal. As one of the leaders of immigration reform, I go to the gym and we're on the bikes together with Sen. Sessions, we're very friendly, Schumer told reporters Wednesday. But he has been more anti-immigration than just about any other single lawmaker I can think of. It's hard for me to countenance an attorney general that is so anti-immigration, he added. In addition, Schumer said he feels similarly uneasy about Sessions' positions on the Voting Rights Act. The Voting Rights Act to many of us is sacred, and in the past Sen. Sessions has been no friend of [the law], and the attorney general is the protector of voting rights – so those are the questions I would have, Schumer said.
